Yea he says in the interview the he has to make the decision and he also said that he wasn't sayin anything that Bruce was gonna make the decisions and announce it after they talk I guess? It never said he was leaving or stayin. But like you said mostly everybody expects him to go.

Bad move imo. We'll never win championships if 3-4 juniors go pro every year.

yes Ace is short for Tracy. His father is also named Tracy Sanders and he played corner/safety for FSU and then Buffalo. He didn't play long in the NFL but did play. he was mainly an arena player and a World Football League when that did exsisit.

I can see him in a similar role to what Ace is doing in Jax, except not returning kicks.

Default Re: Bruce Ellington to declare for NFL?

I am very disappointed for our team, but we all have to admit that Bruce is ready for the NFL.

His hilite films will blow NFL scouts away, especially when they see how reliable he is on third down and on sideline routes.

The guy has more body control than most top NFL receivers. He also doesn't juggle balls along the sideline, so replays go in his favor over and over again.

And he got his degree, so yes, I can support him moving on.

Congratulations, Bruce!

Not gonna be a great move when he goes undrafted. I appreciate everything he has done while here and I agree he doesn't owe the University anything else. But he'll be a 5th-6th round pick, at best.

Our receiving corps will be completely fine next year. Pharoah is the next Bruce.

Default Re: Bruce Ellington to declare for NFL?

Hate this for the team but I saw it coming.

It's hard to tell a guy who has his degree (which more often than not is the reason so many of us feel as if someone should come back) that he needs to come back for another year.

Bruce has done more than most in his 3.5 years here at the University of South Carolina and I greatly appreciate it.

My greatest regret for Bruce? Him not walking on Senior day to one last Brrrrrrruuuuuucccccccceeeeeeeeee at the Brice.

Congratulations sir and go make us even more proud.

Be careful what you wish for. I remember when we couldn't get 3-4 seniors going pro every year.

It's not a problem if they are locks to go in the first round or the second. We have a history of Juniors leaving that don't get drafted till the 4th round or later.

Has he signed with an agent yet? If not, might just be testing the waters, which would be a wise thing to do.

Personally, I hate to see Bruce go, but after his bowl performance, his star isn't going to shine much brighter so he's doing the right thing.

I hate to see Bruce go. Best of luck to him. However, it will free up another scholarship for us in a year we desperately need them.

I am not saying he will or won't get drafted. Is he gonna do better next year to help is draft status? The only knock on him is his size. Is he gonna grow 4 inches next year? His draft status will not change which means he is 1 year farther into his money making days. The second contract is where the major money is now since the NFL changed rookie pay scale. He just has to get in the league as soon as possible. I agree he is probably looking at 5th or 6th round but he is closer to Ace's situation not Tori Gurley's.
