The National Football League can wait another year. At least that is what Florida State cornerback Greg Reid has decided.
The 5-foot, 8-inch cornerback told the Valdosta Daily Times Friday afternoon that he has decided to return for his senior season.
“I decided to stay and wait a year,” Reid said. “I just had a meeting with Coach (Fisher) and I am deciding to stay. I still feel like I have a lot of business to accomplish, so I want to get that done ”
The former Lowndes standout Reid said the decision to stay for his senior season came after receiving his evaluation paperwork back from the NFL, which projected him a third round pick.
Reid recorded 32 tackles and two interceptions for the Seminoles in 2011. He also averaged 11.2 yards per punt return, returning one for a score.
Reid was voted Player of the Year across the state of Georgia following his senior season with the Vikings in 2008.
