Underclassmen have until January 14 to officially enter the 2019 NFL Draft. That means it is crunch time for those prospects who haven't made a decision yet on their future.

One of those players is Clemson cornerback Trayvon Mullen, but it seems like Mullen has his choice figured out. He is just waiting on the feedback from the evaluation committee.

Mullen told reporters today that if he gets a report saying he is in the first or second-round mix, he will turn pro. Anything less and he will be back at Clemson in 2019.

The NFL's College Advisory Committee gives grades to any underclassmen who submits his name. A player can receive one of three grades: potential first-round pick, potential second-round pick, or neither, which is essentially a recommendation that the player returns to school.

Mullen has recorded 26 tackles, four pass breakups and one sack this season. He's played in all 13 Clemson games, starting 12.

Clemson will face Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday, December 29. The winner will face either Alabama or Oklahoma in the national title game.

ESPN will broadcast the game.
