SEATTLE  -- Washington running back Bishop Sankey will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft after the best rushing season in school history.

Sankey's father, Chris, confirmed his son's decision in a text message to The Associated Press on Monday. ESPN first reported Sankey's decision. Sankey has not yet decided on an agent.

Sankey is coming off the finest season in Washington history, rushing for 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns in 13 games. He broke Corey Dillon's school record for yards rushing in a season. Sankey had 95 yards in Washington's 31-16 win over BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl last Friday.

Sankey is the second Washington junior to announce he's leaving school early. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins announced after the bowl game that he was headed to the NFL.
