After the best season of his college career, Houston wide receiver Demarcus Ayers has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
"It was a very tough decision," Ayers said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "Speaking to my family and everybody [Thursday] morning, everybody let me know, "D.A., go out with a bang.'"
He did that for 13-1 Houston. Ayers had nine catches for 82 yards and threw for a touchdown in the Cougars' 38-24 win over Florida State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
Ayers had a career-high 98 catches for 1,222 yards and six touchdowns this season.
"Man, it's been a long road, a long journey and I'm proud," Ayers said, according to the Chronicle.
