GAINESVILLE -- Florida junior safety Major Wright told The Miami Herald on Monday evening that he will enter the 2010 NFL Draft and forego his senior season of eligibility.
"I'm going to the NFL," Wright said in a text message.
A three-year starter at Florida, Wright was a mainstay for some of the best defenses in Florida football history. A devastating tackler since his days at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Wright's most memorable hit of his college career came during the first quarter of the 2008 BCS national championship game on Oklahoma's first offensive series. Wright leveled Oklahoma receiver Manny Johnson on a fly pattern, setting the tone for the game. UF defeated Oklahoma 24-14.
Wright finished his career at UF with 165 tackles, 10 passes defended, eight interceptions, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
