MADISON - The Wisconsin Badgers say that running back Montee Ball will make an announcement at 3:00 p.m. Thursday about his future plans.
Multiple reports, including one from the Journal Sentinel, said that Ball was set to return to Wisconsin for his senior season, despite strong possibilities of becoming a high NFL draft pick in 2012.
The news conference has been scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
The Heisman Trophy finalist tied Barry Sanders' NCAA single-season touchdown record with 39, along with rushing for an FBS-leading 1,923 yards this season.
"Lots of speculation out there, leaning one way but just not ready to make an announcement yet, appreciate everyone's patience," he said on his Facebook page Wednesday.
