“The decision has been made … I will be in a Kent State uniform for my senior season,” Archer announced on his Twitter feed. “I know this is a great choice. I am going to work and train harder than I ever have before to make this last go around the best time of my life.”
That’s excellent news for the Golden Flashes as Archer is the best offensive player in the MAC and one of the most exciting players in college football. As a junior, he led Kent State in rushing (1,482 yards, 16 touchdowns and 9.0 yards per carry), receptions (39 catches for 561 yards and four touchdowns) and averaged 36.9 yards per kickoff return with three touchdowns (before teams stopped kicking to him).
Archer’s decision will make coach Paul Haynes first year that much easier, especially as it features a schedule that calls for trips to Penn State and LSU.
