Trio of juniors remain undecided about NFL future

MIAMI GARDENS — Rap blared out of a sound system in the middle of the locker room. Players walked around celebrating, dancing, passing jerseys around to have teammates sign them and hugs were exchanged before the team was released for the last time.

For a few juniors, the question lingered whether this would be their final game or if they would put the NFL Draft on hold and come back to school.

We asked Trevon Grimes, Kadarius Toney and Marco Wilson if they had made their decisions yet — none of them had made a final decision.

Here is what each told Gator Country about their future.

Marco Wilson
“I haven’t made a decision. I haven’t put too much thought into it yet. It can be tough (to make a decision). That’s why I decided just not to think about it right now so I won’t be distracted.”

At this point, Shawn Davis yelled, “Come back, Marco!”

Kadarius Toney

“I haven’t made a decision yet. It wouldn’t hurt me to stay another year but I haven’t weighed all my options yet. I have to sit down and talk with my people first and figure it out, really. I don’t really know at this moment.”

What are you looking at as determining factors?
“If the situation is right, I feel like I’ll go ahead and make my decision but I haven’t even thought about it. I’m trying to enjoy this win.”

Grimes didn’t want to talk about a timetable or where he was in the decision-making process but said he has a lot to think about.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
