Kent State speedster Dri Archer has turned down the lure of leaving college early for the NFL Draft.
On his own personal Twitter page (@Dri_Archer1), the slotback announced his return to the Golden Flashes' football team for his senior season.
His tweet read the following:
"A decision has been made.2013 I will be in a Kent State uniform for my senior season. A choice had to be made and I know this is a great choice I am making ... with that bein said I am going to work/train harder than I ever have before to make this last go round the best time of my life believe that!! ... I got some things to accomplish before I leave ..."
New head coach Paul Haynes announced earlier this week that if Archer chose to stay in Kent, he, along with others within the university's athletic department, would set out to launch a Heisman campaign for Archer.
Confirming Archer's announcement via social media was the official Twitter page for the Kent State athletic department (@KSUAthletics), which tweeted:
"Kent State's single-season record holder for TDs looks to become career record holder next year- Dri Archer is coming back #DriForHeisman"
