According to a Tweet from Neil Stratton, University of Texas RB D’Onta Foreman has chosen Select Sports for his representation in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The 6’1″, 249 pound junior chose Houston-based Select Sports from four other agencies. Following a breakout individual junior season in which he rushed for 2,208 yards and 15 TDs, Foreman declared for the NFL Draft. With the Longhorns finishing a disappointing 5-7, and firing head coach Charlie Strong, Foreman’s decided to forgo his senior season rather than undergo a coaching change and stay under newly named head coach Tom Herman. After rushing for 754 in his first two seasons, he nearly tripled his output as a junior and his stock is quickly rising.
The national media has taken notice of his performance, as Foreman is a finalist for the 2016 Doak Walker Award and semifinalist for both the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. He is listed as the number seven ranked running back by NFLDraftScout.com.
