Following Towson University’s 35-7 loss to North Dakota State, junior RB Terrance West was asked about his potential NFL future.
West (Northwestern) became the first player in FCS history to rush for 0ver 2,500 yards in the loss, pushing his career numbers to nearly 5,000 yards in three seasons since joining Rob Ambrose’s program. West finished the season with a single season record 42 total touchdowns as well.
“I’m not sure yet”, West said after the title game according to the Baltimore Sun. “Ask me that question in a couple more days.”
West had told WNST’s Glenn Clark on “The Reality Check” Friday of his potential NFL future “let me just bring the trophy home and then we’ll worry about that.”
Many analysts believe West will bypass his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently said of the Walter Payton Award finalist “my eyes tell me West has the goods to be a solid pro down the road”. West (5’11”, 223 pounds) doesn’t possess particularly great speed (4.59 second 40 yard dash) but could still end up being a mid to late round pick should he choose to declare for the Draft.
According to PressBox, Ambrose says he plans to chat with West about his future in the coming days.
