Bison running back announces plans to enter the transfer portal
FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - North Dakota State senior running back Adam Cofield announced his plans to enter the transfer portal Wednesday afternoon.
The 5-foot-11, 200 pound running back posted to Twitter and Instagram, sharing he will graduate in December and then plans to transfer. He said in his statement that he has, “a goal to make it to the next level and with that being said this is the best decision for me to achieve my goal.”
Cofield made 11 starts at running back and played in all 16 games in his junior season, extending his streak to 31 consecutive games played.
He was one of four 600-yard rushers on the Bison roster last year and was second on the team with 167 carries and 46 rushing first downs, ranking fourth in the Missouri Valley Football Conference with 12 rushing touchdowns and 13 total touchdowns.
Bison fans will remember him most for his career-best 71-yard touchdown on fourth-and-1 to break a 16-16 tie with 2:32 left in the eventual win at South Dakota State last year.
