Johnthan Banks Will Return For Senior Season

Mississippi State junior cornerback Johnthan Banks has decided not to enter the NFL Draft and return to Mississippi State for his senior season. Teammate Fletcher Cox announced earlier today that he will enter the draft after receiving a second-round rating from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. Banks (and Josh Boyd) received a fourth-round rating.

"I feel like a weight is lifted off my shoulders by making this announcement," Banks said. "I'm coming back to Mississippi State to continue my development as a player and a person. I've always wanted to play football here and I love the university, my coaches and teammates.

Banks was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award this year and will surely be a front runner for the award in his senior season.
