Florida's Harvin Leaving, Spikes Staying

By  | 

Florida receiver Percy Harvin is leaving school early to enter the NFL draft, but linebacker Brandon Spikes will return for his senior season.

Harvin and Spikes, both juniors, announced their intentions
Thursday - hours before the deadline for underclassmen to declare
for the NFL draft.

Harvin led the national champions in receiving and was second on
the team in rushing. He caught 40 passes for 644 yards and seven
touchdowns, and ran for 660 yards and 10 scores. He missed two
games because of injury, and his durability could be a major
concern heading into the draft.

Spikes led the Gators with 93 tackles this season. The defensive
captain also had eight sacks and four interceptions.
