Boise State Running Back D.J. Harper To Return For 6th Year

The Boise St. Broncos will have one less departure to worry about in the 2012 season. According to the official Twitter account of the Broncos, D.J. Harper has been cleared to play for his sixth season:

The Texas native will return for his sixth season after missing almost all of two separate junior seasons with ACL injuries. The news is great for the Broncos offense, which is losing its top quarterback Kellen Moore, the NCAA record holder for most wins as a starting quarterback, as well as a slew of other seniors.

On his career, Harper has averaged over 4.5 yards per carry and has played a little every season despite his two redshirts. He likely enters the 2012 season atop the running back depth chart.
