Remember Josey injured his knee late in the 2011 season and missed all of 2012.
But the Texas native roared back this past season.
Josey scored three toucdowns for Mizzou in last week's Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.
He rushed for 92 yards and caught ten more yards through the air.
His fourth quarter touchdown put Mizzou ahead for good.
Josey rushed for more than a thousand yards both this season and the one when he got hurt.
He joins defensive end Kony Ealy in leaving Columbia early to enter the NFL draft.
Here's a look at how the Associated Press top five looks following the college football season.
Florida State is number one, 14-0, Auburn is second, then comes Michigan State and South Carolina.
Mizzou is fifth at 12-2, that's the best Tigers finish since 2007 when Mizzou finished fourth in the AP voting.
