A.J. Green Denies Report He's Leaving Georgia Early For NFL Draft

UPDATE: Half an hour later, Green tweeted, "Haven't even made a decision yet!" after a crashing wave of Georgia fans mobbed his Twitter all at once. So there you go. Probably still going to leave Georgia, though.

Georgia Bulldogs WR A.J. Green has denied via Twitter Wednesday’s report by WSBTV.com that he’s planning to skip his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Green, from late Wednesday night:

Idk where these ppl got that I'm going pro..this is def not true..less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Not clear what this is. It’s not true that Green has made up his mind, or it’s not true that Green will go pro? While Dawgs fans on Twitter are taking the latter interpretation and running with it, God bless ’em, it could still only be the former.

Or the latter phrase could be a comment on the first. As in "It’s definitely not true that I don’t know where these people got that I’m going pro." That’s probably not it, but we’re here to explore all our options.

Georgia QB Aaron Murray chimed in shortly after, and either these two are trolling Dawg Nation hard, or Green's sticking around:

@ajgreen_uga8 heard your coming back to win a Heisman haha    

Green is expected to be a top-five pick in the NFL Draft whenever he does get around to entering it. Our own Mocking The Draft has ranked him as the nation’s most talented player and the No. 1 draft prospect.

WSB, for their part, isn't changing their tune:

That's not what u told 2 sources close 2u. Stand by story RT @ajgreen_uga8: Idk where these ppl got that I'm going pro..this is def not trueless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone
