Had Wisconsin Badger running back Corey Clement not missed most of the season because of a Sports Hernia, he would likely have been headed  to the NFL after the season.  But those circumstances may lead to Clement sticking around Madison for his senior year.

Clement says he’ll still seek a grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.  If the result is a first or second round projection, Clement says he’ll enter the Draft.  Anything lower than that and Clement will likely be headed back to Madison for his senior season.

Clement has been held to three games because of the injury and surgery to follow.

Clement says he’ll have discussions with the Badger coaching staff after the end of the season.  He isn’t ruling out the NFL, or a return to Madison.
