The National Football Post is reporting that Michael Crabtree will declare for the 2009 NFL draft. There had been some confusion regarding the Texas Tech receivers intentions. Mixed signals in a couple of interviews had Crabtree both staying with the Red Raiders and heading for the NFL.
The article claims that an on-campus press conference will be scheduled this week where Crabtree will confirm his decision. It's not surprising that the nation's leading receiver is turning pro. After winning back to back Biletnikoff's and as a two-time All-American he has little personal achievement to gain by returning to the college ranks. Texas Tech are unlikely to match 2008's achievements this year with Graham Harrell moving on.
