With exactly a week remaining before the deadline for underclassman to make themselves available for the 2010 NFL draft, the declarations are coming fast and furious.
The latest to make his intentions known is Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who announced through a press from the school that he’s skipping his senior season.
“This was a difficult decision for me because I love Georgia Tech and Atlanta,” Thomas said. “But, after talking it over with my family, we felt like it was time to move on to the next level.
“I want to thank Coach (Paul) Johnson and all the (assistant) coaches for all that they have done for me. He has been straight-up with me from the beginning and I will always appreciate that.”
Thomas, who averaged 25.1 yards per catch this season, was a first-team All-ACC selection, a third-team Associated Press All-American and a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award in 2009.
