"This school and program have helped me become a better person on and off the field. Because of the culture, our fans and for many other reasons, Death Valley will always hold special memories for me...With all this being said, it was a tough decision, but I left it in God's hands. I am ready to move on to the next chapter in my life. I have decided to forgo my senior year and declare for the NFL draft."
