Here's the bad news from the Spokesman...

Eastern Washington junior running back Taiwan Jones, who was the Big Sky Conference co-Offensive Most Valuable Player, is entering the National Football League draft, The Spokesman-Review confirmed Friday morning.

Jones, who rushed for 1,172 yards for the FCS national champions despite missing the last two playoff games with an injury, was in California and could not be immediately reached for comment.

Now for those of you that are throwing your arms up and going "Why is he leaving, he should stay in school!" think about the following...

1. He's effing awesome.
2. He's been somewhat injury-prone.
3. He's not coming out unless some team had said they're going to pick him.

So while it would be great to have him for another season, this is probably the right move. Best of luck to him!
