Looks like Maryland’s Darrius Heyward-Bey has some more company in the draft pool.

Virginia‘s Kevin Ogletree announced today he’ll turn pro as well, meaning three of the top four junior wideouts in the ACC have declared for the NFL Draft.


Hakeem Nicks of North Carolina already announced his plans to go pro. The other junior in the bunch is Clemson’s Jacoby Ford.

By the way, Ogletree is the ninth Virginia player to turn pro with eligibility remaining. The others? Marcus Wilson (1989), Herman Moore (1990), Ronde Barber (1996), Tavon Mason (2001), Heath Miller (2004), Darryl Blackstock (2004), Kai Parham (2005) and Branden Albert (2007).
