Florida CB Loucheiz Purifoy to go pro

Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy will enter the NFL draft, he told ESPN's Joe Schad on Saturday.

Purifoy revealed his decision after Florida lost its final game of the season, 37-7 to No. 2 Florida State, in which he made his second interception of the season.

The 6-foot, 185-pound Purifoy, is the No. 5 defensive back eligible for the draft, according to ESPNs Todd McShay. Purifoy finished the season with 24 tackles, two interceptions, seven pass breakups and sack sacks.

Purifoy, a junior who also saw time on offense, ran an interception back for a touchdown Oct. 5 against Arkansas.

He was one of five Gators suspended for the season opener for a violation of team rules.

Florida finished the season 4-8 and will not play in a bowl game.
