Michigan State Trio Headed For 2013 NFL Draft


A trio of Michigan State Spartans will be heading to the next level. Running back Le’Veon Bell, defensive end William Gholston and tight end Dion Sims have decided to enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Bell and Lewis confirmed the news on Twitter:

 

Gholston announced his decision in a statement:

“After thinking everything over and talking to coach Dantonio, I knew it in my heart leaving for the NFL was the best decision for me,” Gholston told the website. “I want to thank everyone who helped me get to this point in my career and everything the entire Michigan State has done for me.”

A big factor in Gholston’s decision was the ability to support his young son.

“Every snap, every down and every step I take throughout life is for him,” Gholston said. “My son means everything to me because he is part of me in everything I do.”

Gholston is the most highly-touted of the Spartans prospects and could receive second-round consideration.
