VT's Worilds to enter the NFL draft
By ESPN.com staff
Virginia Tech defensive end Jason Worilds said he has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. He said it was an "extremely difficult" decision, and it's also one that is a change of heart from about a month ago. He said he expects the Hokies to be able to go on and win a national championship without him. He said he expects to be a first-day guy, but wouldn't go into details about his draft status. He said he is "a couple papers away" from graduating.
"It really came down to how I felt," he said. "... I felt as though it was time for me."
He said he has not hired an agent yet and he really doesn't want to get into that.
I'm on his teleconference right now (hence all the "he saids" and not direct quotes.) I'll have more from Worilds after his teleconference is over.
