Alabama Crimson Tide: Dee Millliner

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama starting tailback Eddie Lacy and starting cornerback Dee Milliner are holding off on plans for their future until after the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 7. The pair of juniors will wait to determine whether turning pro and entering the NFL draft is the right decision for them.

"I have not made a decision on that yet," said Lacy, who led Alabama with 1,215 yards rushing, Thursday afternoon. "That’s not something I’m thinking about at this time. We have another game left. I have to talk to my parents about it. I have to talk to Coach (Nick) Saban about it.

"That’s an external factor that we cannot allow us to affect us right now. So after the bowl game, after we sit down, we’ll make a decision."

Milliner, whom some consider the top draft-eligible cornerback in the country, said he's taking the same route. For now, he wants to focus on Notre Dame and the final game of the season for Alabama.

"I haven't taken the time out to think about it yet," he said. "After the game I'm going to sit down with my family and Coach Saban and make the best choice for my future."

Milliner, an AP All-American selection, is tied for third in the country in passes defended with 20. He has two interceptions this season and ranks fifth on the team in tackles with 51.
