Nebraska Football: Running Back Ronald Thompkins Announces He is Retiring from Football

Nebraska took a chance on Ronald Thompkins out of high school because of two serious knee injuries. He likely would have been one of the top running backs in the country if he was healthy.

Today Ronald Thompkins II announced on twitter that he will be retiring from football.

Thompkins was probably the most talented player in the running back room but he could not stay healthy.

In 2020, Thompkins had five carries for twenty-four yards and one catch for 10 yards.

Whatever Thompkins chooses to do from here we definitely wish him luck!
