Kenjon Barner to Return to Oregon For 2012
University of Oregon running back Kenjon Barner has decided to forego the 2012 NFL Draft in favor of returning to school for his senior year.
The 5-11, 195-pound Riverside, Calif., standout ranked as the Ducks’ second-leading rusher each of the past two seasons, running for 939 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2011 as a junior.
Barner also caught 17 passes for 184 yards and three scores, including a 54-yard catch that resulted in a TD against Wisconsin in the 45-38 win in the 2012 Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO.
“This was a decision that wasn’t easy for me,” Barner said. “But after talking things over with my family and Coach (Gary) Campbell, as well as praying about it, I have decided that I will return to Oregon for my senior year.”
