Clemson Tigers defensive end Vic Beasley was expected to be one of the record number of college football underclassmen to declare for the draft before the Jan. 15 deadline, but now it looks like he may be having a change of heart.
After initial reports that Beasley would be entering the draft, the news is now surfacing that he is leaning towards a return to Clemson.
From Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports:
#Clemson may get some very good news soon. Multiple sources indicate DL Vic Beasley is now leaning toward returning for his RS senior year.

If Beasley were to enter for the draft, there would be a good chance that he could be selected at the end for the first-round.
However, by returning, Beasley can continue to fine tune his skill set and become one of the top available edge rushers in the 2015 NFL Draft class.
