Ole Miss received some good news for next season, and junior running back Brandon Bolden made a wise decision.
Bolden has decided to return for his senior season after considering a jump to the NFL. He had a breakout season for the Rebels this year and showed that he was one of the more versatile running backs in the SEC. He led the Rebels in rushing with 976 yards and 14 touchdowns and also led them in receiving with 32 catches and three more touchdowns.
With another season as Ole Miss' go-to guy on offense, Bolden has a chance to take his game to another level and make himself into a sure-fire early-round draft selection. One of the hardest-working players in the Rebels' strength and conditioning program, Bolden will return even better next season. He was already one of the more underrated players in the league this year.
