KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee defensive back Rashaan Gaulden has tweeted that he’s forgoing his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.

Gaulden tweeted that “it has been an honor to wear the Orange and White and represent the Power T while playing in Neyland Stadium the last four years.” He thanked his coaches and teammates as well as Tennessee’s fans.

As a fourth-year junior this season, Gaulden had 65 tackles, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, an interception and five pass breakups. The 6-foot-1 defensive back had a year of eligibility remaining because he redshirted due to a foot injury in 2015.

Gaulden joins running back John Kelly as Tennessee players entering the draft with eligibility remaining. Kelly announced his decision on social media Friday.
