Vontaze Burfict Makes It Official, Will Enter 2012 NFL Draft

Arizona State University's talented but frustrating junior linebacker, Vontaze Burfict, has made his intentions official. After posting a message on his Facebook page on Monday, he followed up with a prepared statement indicating his desire to leave school and head for the 2012 NFL Draft.

Burfict's prepared statement said:

"After thoughtful and in-depth discussions with my family, I have decided to skip my final year of eligibility at Arizona State University and make myself eligible for the 2012 NFL Draft. I would like to thank every one of my coaches and professors at ASU. I plan to return to ASU and get my degree and I will always support the university and its football program. I cherish the memories and great times I had as a student-athlete at ASU and I hope to make the university proud of my future accomplishments on and off the field."
