Tuesday January 13th, 2015

UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman has decided to enter the NFL draft, the school announced on Monday.

Over 13 games this season, Perriman caught 50 passes for a team-high 1,044 yards and nine touchdowns.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound junior caught the 51-yard Hail Mary pass against East Carolina on Dec. 4 that claimed a share of the AAC title for the Knights.

“I met with Breshad on Sunday. After discussing it with his family, he informed me he of his plans to enter the draft,” UCF coach George O’Leary said in a news release. “I wish him the best of luck and I hope everything works out for him.”

UCF finished 9-4 this season after falling to N.C. State in the St. Petersburg Bowl.
