USC receiver Nelson Agholor gathering information about NFL decision

USC junior receiver Nelson Agholor gathers information before deciding whether he'll enter NFL draft

USC receiver Nelson Agholor has begun the process of educating himself about his options before deciding whether to declare for the NFL draft or return for his final season of eligibility.

"I’m gathering a lot of information from both sides so I can make the best decision," Agholor said Friday after practice.

Agholor has a team-best 97 catches, 11 for touchdowns. He also has returned two punts for touchdowns.

The 6-foot-1 Agholor is one of four USC draft-eligible juniors expected to consider turning pro after the Dec. 27 Holiday Bowl.

Defensive lineman Leonard Williams is projected as a first-round draft pick and is expected to make himself available for the draft. Tailback Javorius Allen also could be leaning that way, and quarterback Cody Kessler has also said he would request a draft evaluation from the NFL.

The Trojans will play Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
