Adrian Peterson, the former No. 1 high school prospect in the nation (The 2004 Rivals100) declared for the NFL Draft on Monday after rushing for more than 1000 yards in each of three seasons at Oklahoma.
As a freshman, Peterson ran through and around the Big 12. He accumulated 1925 yards and 15 scores while finishing second in the Heisman Trophy balloting, the best finish for a freshman. He is the first Sooner freshman to earn All-American honors.
He leaves Oklahoma as the third leading rusher in school history despite dealing with various injuries. In 2005, Peterson battled an ankle injury and started just seven games. This season, a broken collarbone ended his regular season after six games. Peterson returned for the Fiesta Bowl matchup against Boise State and finished his junior campaign with 1,012 yards.
