Wisconsin's Montee Ball made a shocking announcement. NBC Sports reports that Ball will not enter the 2012 NFL draft.

Instead, Ball will return to Wisconsin for his senior year. The running back capped his junior year with trips to the Heisman Trophy ceremony and the Rose Bowl.

Ball commented on his decision, saying, "I took the time to take in everyone's opinions ... I listened to my heart and I will be returning for my senior season."

Ball said he decided not to enter the 2012 draft when he learned that the NFL draft advisory board gave him a third-round grade. Ball is hoping that by having a great senior season, he'll be given a first-round grade the next time around.
