RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) â€” North Carolina State running back Nyheim Hines is skipping his final season to enter the NFL draft.
The school announced Hinesâ€™ decision Friday. Hines ran for 1,112 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the nine-win Wolfpack and was a first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick for The Associated Press. He averaged 143.7 all-purpose yards per game, leading the ACC and ranking fifth among power-conference players.
Hines was also a Wolfpack track star. He was an ACC champion and all-American running the leadoff leg for the schoolâ€™s 4Ă—100-meter relay team. He also was an all-conference pick for the 100- and 60-meter events.
The school said Hines plans to complete his coursework for a degree.
