Carter will leave UGA for NFL
ATHENS, Ga. -- Quincy Carter's junior season was his worst. That
didn't stop the quarterback from giving up his final year at Georgia to enter the NFL draft.
Carter, who completed less than half of his passes in an injury-plagued season, announced Tuesday he is turning pro. He decided after meeting with new coach Mark Richt. Carter declined to comment about how high he expects to be drafted.
Report: Vick going pro
Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Vick will skip his final two seasons to enter the draft, the Daily Press of Newport News, Va., reported today. He will make an announcement Thursday, the newspaper reported. He has until Friday afternoon to file with the NFL declaring his availability. If he leaves, Vick is expected to be among the top three selections.
ARIZONA: Coach John Mackovic, hired last month, signed a five-year contract worth $800,000 a year.
CLEMSON: All-America linebacker Keith Adams will skip his senior year to enter the draft.
FLORIDA: Florida received an oral commitment from defensive tackle Bryan Savelio. Savelio, 21, is a transfer from Mesa Community College in Arizona. He is enrolled and counts toward last year's recruiting class.
OKLAHOMA STATE: Reggie White, who ran for 1,049 yards as a junior, will forgo his senior year to enter the draft.
