CLEMSON – C.J. Spiller said today he would return for his final season of eligibility at Clemson University rather than enter the NFL Draft.
Spiller, a junior from Lake Butler, Fla., took the decision to the wire. The NFL deadline is midnight tonight.
One of the most electric offensive players in Clemson history, Spiller was projected as a late first round or early second round pick.
He holds Clemson records for career all-purpose yardage (4,885) and has scored 30 touchdowns, 12 on plays of 50 yards or more including two kickoff returns.
Spiller has rushed for 2,335 yards in three seasons, caught passes for 915 yards and in 2008 passed for a touchdown.
