Statement from DeShon Elliott:

After much thought and prayer, my family and I have made the decision to forego my senior year at The University of Texas to enter the NFL Draft. I will not be playing in the bowl game as I plan to begin preparing for my professional career immediately.

It was a very difficult decision that I put a lot of thought into. I want to thank my coaches and teammates for the support and all they've done to make an impact on my life. I really appreciate Coach Strong giving me the opportunity to play and grow as a player and person at Texas. Coach Herman has been amazing, and I'm really excited about what he's building here. I know that Longhorn football is in good hands. Coach Naivar and our strength coach Yancy McKnight have helped me take my game to the next level, and because of that, I feel prepared to take this next step.

To the awesome Longhorn fans, you have made every game in DKR an experience like no other, and for that, I thank you. And most of all, thank you to my parents for molding me into the athlete and person I am today. I couldn't have done it without you. I am excited about the future but will forever be a Longhorn.

He is still involved with Strong’s daughter, isn’t he?  Probably the reason for the tweet location ‘Miami’. This doesn’t surprise me. 

I was glad he didn’t transfer when Strong moved on.
