Myles Jack has withdrawn from school with the intention of entering the NFL Draft, according to UCLA coach Jim Mora.
Jack, the star junior linebacker, tore the meniscus in his knee during practice a couple of weeks ago. Mora said at the time that Jack was projected to be out 4 to 6 months.
In his post-practice media interview Tuesday, Mora said that the opportunity to rehab and train full-time in preparation for the draft was the reasoning behind the decision.
"He doesn't see any point in staying in school," Mora said.
We'll have more from Mora on Jack this morning.
