Melina Vastola/US PresswireGreg Reid was dismissed from the Florida State team over the summer, then tore his ACL before what would have been his senior season at Valdosta State.
Former Florida State cornerback Greg Reid said he plans to declare for the 2013 NFL draft, despite missing the entirety of the 2012 season with Valdosta State with a knee injury.
Reid could have applied for a medical redshirt that would have allowed him to return to college next season -- perhaps at a Division I school -- but he said the only destination he would have considered was FSU.
"If I had a chance to go back to a Division I school, of course it would be Florida State, but after [former defensive coordinator Mark] Stoops left and things like that, I think I'm going to declare for the draft and hope for the best," Reid said. "I want to just get my image cleared up and go from there. Train hard, work hard and hope everything pans out."
Reid was a three-year starter for the Seminoles at cornerback and punt returner, but he was dismissed on Aug. 1 for a violation of team rules following an arrest on charges of marijuana possession. It was Reid's third off-field violation.
