Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes says he'll forgo his senior season and turn pro this year.
Rhodes made the announcement Tuesday after the Seminoles' 31-10 victory over Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl. Coach Jimbo Fisher predicted the converted wide receiver, considered a potential first-round draft pick, will thrive in the NFL.
Rhodes forced and recovered a Huskies fumble in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory. He started 38 games and had eight career interceptions.
Junior defensive end Bjoern Werner said he'll make an announcement about his plans in the next few days.
