Caleb King Confirms NFL Supplemental Draft Entry In Statement

Former Georgia Bulldogs RB Caleb King has confirmed the rumors of his NFL Supplemental Draft participation, officially electing to close the door on his college football career. The draft has no set date yet. King and Terrelle Pryor are the only players in it at this point.

A statement from King on his exit from Georgia:

My years at the University of Georgia have afforded me a tremendous opportunity to develop my skills on the field. Coach Mark Richt and the entire UGA football team and staff have been instrumental in my growth and development both on and off the gridiron. I have learned countless lessons that continue to mold me into a better individual and player. While I will miss my Bulldog family, I will continue to put my situation and future career in God's hands. I look forward to pursuing an opportunity at the next level through the NFL's supplemental draft and playing the game that I have loved since I was a young boy.    

After being found academically ineligible for UGA's 2010 bowl game, King again was unable to get his grades up in time for the 2011 season. That plus an arrest last year are going to severely hamper his NFL chances. He'll have to hope some team out there really, really hates the backfield that it's working with all of a sudden.
