Never a dull moment in the ACC ...

This just in from Virginia:

University of Virginia wide receiver Kevin Ogletree announced he will forego his final year of collegiate eligibility and enter the NFL Draft this April.

Ogletree led the team in receiving this past season with 58 catches for 723 yards and five touchdowns, the second 50-catch season of his career. He finished fifth in the ACC in receptions (4.8/g), and third in receiving yards (60.2/g) and touchdowns (5) and was an honorable mention All-ACC selection. ... 

"Kevin has been a significant part of our team," said head coach Al Groh. "He was a strong performer and an excellent teammate. Kevin received his degree in December and feels this is the appropriate time for him to move on; we agree and support him in his decision and wish him much success."
