TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama All-American linebacker Rolando McClain says he is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
McClain made the announcement Monday at a news conference in Tuscaloosa. An defensive anchor for the national champion Crimson Tide, McClain is projected as a first-round pick.
He led Alabama with 105 tackles and 14.5 stops for losses. He also had two interceptions and two sacks.
Alabama beat Texas last week to claim its first national title since 1992.
