Penn State Nittany Lions running back and Heisman candidate Saquon Barkley has reportedly made a decision on his college decision. Last year, former LSU Tigers back Leonard Fournette and Stanford Cardinal back Christian McCaffrey decided to skip their respective team’s bowl game.

However, it does not appear that Barkley will skip the team’s bowl game. Barkley said, if he’s healthy, he’ll play in whichever bowl game the Nittany Lions heads to, likely in January.

“Actually, let me clear that up,” the junior standout continued, according to DK Pittsburgh Sports. “I’m different than Leonard Fournette, Christian McCaffrey, and all those other guys. Our situations are different. We’re all different people. I’m really healthy right now, thank God. Leonard Fournette had a banged up ankle I think. Christian McCaffrey at the time I think he was banged up too. … That’s not being selfish because they have to take care of their families and you see what they’re doing in the NFL right now and they’re having great careers, but I never said that I would not play in the bowl game.”

Barkley closed out his final game at Happy Valley aka Beaver Stadium. Following the season, it’s very likely that the star running back will forgo his senior season to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Through 11 games on 183 carries, he has 1,057 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He also has 46 receptions for 590 yards and three more touchdowns.

On 17 carries, Barkley had 158 carries and three touchdowns in the Nittany Lions 56-44 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday.
