Georgia running back Todd Gurley is planning to leave college early to enter the 2015 NFL Draft.
Bulldogs coach Mike Richt announced after Friday’s practice for the Belk Bowl that Gurley has played his last game for Georgia, ending an abbreviated 2014 season that included a suspension and a knee injury.
Gurley was present for the team’s practice on Friday afternoon but did not speak with the media.
Richt said Gurley’s recovery from knee surgery is going well. The junior is listed as the No. 2 running back in the 2015 draft class behind Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and the No. 30 overall prospect by NFLDraftScout.com.
“I wouldn’t be shocked to see him doing a lot of things for the scouts before the draft,” Richt said.
Gurley was considered a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate but was sidelined for four games because of a suspension for accepting money to autograph memorabilia over the past two years. He then tore the ACL in his left knee in his first game back on the last play of a 34-7 victory over Auburn in November.
No. 13 Georgia is preparing to play No. 20 Louisville on Tuesday.
