Mark Richt Confirms That Todd Gurley Will Leave Georgia For The NFL

Georgia running back Todd Gurley had a tumultuous 2014 season. After getting off to a hot start (and being considered a Heisman Trophy favorite), Gurley was suspended for four games after it was revealed that he signed autographs for money this past offseason. And in his first game returning from the suspension, he tore his ACL. Friday, head coach Mark Richt officially announced that Gurley will not return for his senior season with the program. He'll be moving on to the NFL.

Richt also added that he believes Gurley will be a high draft pick.

The decision doesn't come as a surprise, though the injury likely complicated Gurley's decision. It'll be interesting to see what team takes a shot on him.
