GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida tight end Jordan Reed is leaving school early and entering the NFL draft.
Reed announced his decision Friday, joining safety Matt Elam and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd in skipping their senior season.
Reed, a junior from New London, Conn., led the team in receiving this season. He had 45 receptions for 559 yards and three touchdowns. He was a first-team, All-SEC selection by The Associated Press.
He says "now is the right time to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL."
Floyd and Elam announced their intentions following a loss in the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday night.
Coach Will Muschamp says all three players "are all getting a chance to realize that dream. ... We wish them the very best of luck in the pursuit of their dreams."

Every time Florida wins, the team stays out on the field to sing the alma mater with the band. On Wednesday night, the Gators suffered a shocking loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl. The players and coaches were understandably disappointed after losing a BCS game that almost everyone assumed they would win, but junior linebacker Darrin Kitchens was in no mood to sulk.
As you can...
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words this one taken at the end of Louisville/Florida Sugar Bowl game speaks a lot.
The lone Florida player is backup linebacker Darrin Kitchens who is the only member of the Florida team to stand during the team's alma mater song.
The song is usually reserved for victories but Kitchens still went over to show his support....

Never considered the most solid of commitments, defensive tackle Caleb Brantley is no longer one at all. On Tuesday, the Crescent City, FL (Crescent City) DT informed the Florida Gators via text message that he was decommitting. Although now technically a free agent, there are many that believe this might not be the end of Brantley and the Gators.
Brantley announced via his Twitter...

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this Police Officer and Charlie Strong know each other from Strong’s time in Florida, because that was an emphatic hand slap. If you watch closely at the end of the video, you can tell that between the handslap and the smile, this state police officer wanted Louisville to pull off the upset.Video via: Sports Pickle

The Florida Gators may have lost the game to the Louisville Cardinals last night but Jon Bostic laid out this Louisville player. He swung a closed fisted punch at the Louisville player. This violent act wasn’t enough to overcome the Cards and Charlie Strong. Sportsmanship was lacking is that game. HT @ClutchLikeMJ
College football is always full of surprises. Louisvile's control and domination of the Florida Gators through much of the Sugar Bowl was certainly the best surprise of the bowl season. It's quarterback performances and coaching efforts like that which keep fans on the edge of their seats as soon as kickoff hits.
However, one surprise that didn't come from that game...
Jacksonville linebacker Daniel McMillan says he's 100% committed to the Florida Gators.
Instead of giving Louisville the credit they deserve for coming out last night and completely owning the Florida Gators, you’ll hear some folks mention that Florida was “disinterested” in the game.
Florida’s poor performance is being talked about more than Louisville’s stellar play. After re-watching the game this afternoon, Louisville deserves all the credit for making...
