Mark Ingram entering draft?

I don't think anybody would be shocked to find out that former Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram was going to skip his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.  It's just that when and if the announcement was made, you'd expect it to come from Alabama or Ingram himself.  However, this is not the case, as it seems that the son of a Hall of Fame running back is the one who has broken the news.

While on a recent recruiting visit to meet with Barry Sanders Jr, Nick Saban told Sanders that Ingram was going to be leaving and that he needed running backs.  Sanders then leaked the news to OKBlitz.com.
Heritage Hall running back Barry Sanders, Jr. briefly met Alabama coach Nick Saban Wednesday, and Sanders said Saban told him junior running back Mark Ingram will declare for the NFL Draft.
“He just said ‘We need running backs,’” Sanders said. “How Trent [Richardson] would be a senior if I were to go [to Alabama]. He told me Ingram’s leaving, he’s making it public probably Friday.”
If Ingram does leave, it would be good timing for the running back.  After winning the Heisman as a sophomore, he battled through an injury this season, yet still managed to rush for 875 yards and 13 touchdowns.  In reality, he has nothing left to prove on the college level.  He has the Heisman, and he has a national championship ring.

@DRSchmitz:

I don't know anything about this alleged NCAA rule, but even if you're right about that, where does it say the meeting was off-campus? Looks like you made a pretty big presumption there, because it doesn't say anything about where the meeting took place.

There are three types of teams in college football:  teams that lose, cheaters that win and get caught cheating, and cheaters that win and don't get caught cheating.

For your info, Barry Sanders Jr. is a Junior in High School! Therefore when he graduates next year, Trent Richardson will be a senior dummy!

This sounds like a recruiting violation.  Coaches are not allowed to have off-campus contact with high school juniors. Someone should investigat this -- yet another Saban recruiting violation.
