Polk will decide about return after Alamo Bowl

UW all-conference running back Chris Polk says he hasn't yet decided if he will return for his final season of college eligibility next season or make himself available for the NFL draft.

“I actually haven’t really thought of that because that wouldn’t be fair to my teammates or my coaches and all the fans to have my mind elsewhere,” Polk said after practice today. “Right now I’m just thinking about Baylor and thinking about this bowl game. I think my decision process will probably set in after the bowl game, but as of right now I’m not even worried about that.”

Polk was asked what factors will weigh into his eventual decision.

“I gotta do what’s best for me,” he said. “I’ve got to really evaluate the situation, look at both sides: the pros and cons of leaving or going. But it’s going to be a real tough decision to make. I’m going to have to do a lot of praying on it and really, really study and just evaluate my options because at the end of the day, it’s my life, so what I can do could potentially help or hurt me.”
