Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley will not enter his name in the NFL Draft and return for his senior season, the school announced Wednesday.

Beasley led the Atlantic Coast Conference in sacks, and also had 23 tackles for loss and caused four forced fumbles, helping Clemson to an 11-2 record in his first season as a starter.

He was a first-team All-American selection by several organizations, including the Associated Press.

In the Tigers 40-35 victory over Ohio State in the Orange Bowl, Beasley had four tackles for loss and a sack. He is seven sacks away from setting the school record in that category.

I think this behavior (coming back for the senior season) is going to become more and more rare.  It seems that many football players are not interested in learning anymore and finishing the degrees that were offered to them free of charge.  Also with all the transfers and early declares for the draft it does not look like there is any loyalty to universities and their football programs.  It's all about hoping you make it in the NFL. If not there is always Obamacare + welfare....
