Bryce Brown, who played briefly for Kansas State this fall before quitting the team, is said to be considering early entry into the NFL.
ESPN reported Friday that the running back has left school in Manhattan and that the former top recruit from Wichita is “strongly leaning” toward turning pro.
However, Brown actually left school and Manhattan some time ago during the football season after walking away from the program following the Wildcats’ win at Miami on Sept. 24.
Brown transferred to K-State after one seaon at Tennessee when he rushed for 460 yards as a freshman. He sat out last season due to transfer rules.
The former Wichita East standout came to Manhattan with the obvious fanfare, but got off to a rough start after missing many of the summer workouts.
Brown then declared he would be the starter once the season started, but he was beaten out by sophmore John Hubert, who rushed for 970 yards this season.
Only four options remain for Brown at this point — enter the NFL draft, return to school, quit football altogether, or transfer to another school.
Brown rushed three times for 16 yards, including a fumble, this season.
