ATLANTA — Demaryius Thomas says he is leaving Georgia Tech to enter the NFL draft.
Thomas, a junior wide receiver, announced his decision on Friday.
At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Thomas is an unusually big receiver with good speed. He led the Yellow Jackets with 46 receptions and led the Atlantic Coast Conference with 1,154 yards receiving and about 25 yards per catch this season.
He caught passes in 29 straight games before he was shut out in Georgia Tech’s 24-14 Orange Bowl loss to Iowa on Tuesday.
Georgia Tech is awaiting announcements from at least three more highly rated juniors: defensive end Derrick Morgan, running back Jonathan Dwyer and safety Morgan Burnett. Morgan and Dwyer are rated as probable first-round picks.
