Wisconsin junior running back Montee Ball is returning for his senior season with the Badgers. Ball made the announcement in a Thursday afternoon press conference in Madison. Ball added he plans to add at least 10 pounds in the offseason to get stronger while increasing his speed in order to raise his stock in the NFL Draft after next season. “I believe I’m making the right decision,” Ball said.
Ball’s 1,923 rushing yards led the country and were the seventh-best total in Big Ten history. Ball finished the season with 2,229 all-purpose yards, second-best in school history behind only Ron Dayne’s 2,242 yards in 1996.
