That decision, he said Wednesday, will have to wait until after the season.
“Of course I gave it some thought, but I’ve just got to wait to see how everything plays out,” Singletary said.
As a sophomore Singletary led the nation with 32 rushing touchdowns. Only two players in the history of college football ever ran for more in a season.
This season the junior once again leads the nation in rushing touchdowns, having scored 22 heading in the final week of the regular season.
At the moment he’s alone in sixth place on the NCAA career rushing touchdown list with 66.
As Singletary continued to romp through opposing defenses this season, proving last year wasn’t a fluke, speculation increased that the back known as “Motor” would jump-cut to the NFL.
“People are going to talk about it,” said Singletary, who leads the Conference USA with 1,260 rushing yards.
That talk hasn’t bothered Singletary.
“You’ve just got to embrace it,” he said.
FAU coach Lane Kiffin says he hasn’t discussed the matter with Singletary.
That, too, will come after the season.
“We don’t really talk about it until after the year,” Kiffin said, “We’ll sit down afterward, after he reports back and we’ll see where he stands.”
Draft services rate Singletary, who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 200 points, anywhere from a late third round pick to a late sixth-round selection.
Scouts like Singletary’s vision and strength, which allow him to bounce off would be tacklers. Pro Football Focus has Singletary leading the nation in missed tackles forced.
Singletary enters Saturday’s regular-season finale as both FAU’s and Conference USA’s career leader in rushing yards.
