Dogs safety poised to leave for NFL

ATHENS, Ga. — Just a day after Georgia lost its most experienced defensive back in Asher Allen, safety Reshad Jones is poised to leave school early and enter the NFL draft as well.

Georgia sports information director Claude Felton released a statement Tuesday saying that Jones, a third-year sophomore, was certain he was staying at Georgia, but the safety confirmed Wednesday that he has changed his mind and is leaning toward heading to the NFL.

Today is the deadline for underclassmen to declare their eligibility for the draft, and Jones said he will have an official announcement then.
