ORLANDO, FLORIDA – UCF junior wide receiver Breshad Perriman (Lithonia, Ga.) has announced that he will enter the upcoming NFL Draft.

“I wish him the best of luck and I hope everything works out for him.”
This season Perriman piled up 50 catches for 1,044 yards and 9 touchdowns. Most experts have Breshad Perriman as a third-round pick for the NFL Draft.
