Don't expect Saquon Barkley to talk about whether he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft until after Penn State's bowl game. The ninth-ranked Nittany Lions are playing No. 11 Washington in the Fiesta Bowl slated for Dec. 30, which is what Barkley said he has devoted much of his focus. He said he isn't trying to push himself to make a decision by a certain date, and that impatient fans will simply have to wait. "Whenever it hits me," Barkley told reporters Thursday. "It could be the day after [the bowl game] I know I'm going to stay or going to leave. It could be the last day [to declare]" Barkley was an early Heisman Trophy favorite this year, but late-season losses knocked him out of contention. Even so, many have him tabbed as the first running back to go in the draft.
