Dobbins headed to the NFL

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Ohio State junior running back J.K. Dobbins says he's leaving school early to enter the NFL draft.

Dobbins' decision was expected after a season in which he became the first Buckeyes running back to rush for over 2,000 yards.

He announced his decision on Twitter, saying that ``coming to Ohio from Texas has been nothing short of a dream.''

Dobbins finished the season with 2,046 yards and was a 1,000-yard rusher in each of his two seasons.

He ran for 174 yards and a touchdown in Ohio State's 29-23 College Football Playoff loss to Clemson on Saturday.
