In 2011, Bishop Sankey was more or less anonymous.

In 2013, he was arguably the most feared player in the Pac-12.

Indeed, after getting just 28 carries as a freshman, the Washington running back ran 289 times for 1,439 yards and 16 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2012.

One-year wonder? Flash in the pan? Nope. Sankey set personal bests across the board in 2013, rushing 327 times for 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also had 28 receptions for 304 yards and a touchdown.

That’s an average of 10.9 yards per catch and 6.1 yards per touch.

It appears Sankey has the college game figured out, which is why the 5-10, 203-pound back has elected to forgo his senior season and is now preparing for the NFL.

“I think there’s definitely a transition going into the NFL,” Sankey said on The MoJo Show. “Obviously the guys are bigger and stronger and faster and they do a little bit more on defense, but I feel well-prepared.
