Oregon Ducks running back LaMichael James has already declared for the 2012 NFL Draft, but the Ducks faithful can breathe a sigh of relief in knowing that their other star back, Kenjon Barner, will be returning for his senior season.
“This was a decision that wasn’t easy for me. 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,” Barner said.
This season, Barner had 1,123 total yards and 14 touchdowns rushing and receiving. He was a big part of the Ducks offense and really stepped up during James’ absence. Barner returning is great news for the Ducks as they hope to return to the top of the PAC 12.
