UCLA linebacker Myles Jack has decided to leave school and pursue an NFL career.
The injured linebacker is recovering from a “significant knee injury” suffered in September that knocked him out of the 2015 season for the Bruins.
The Bruins have missed his services in the middle of the field, and head coach Jim Mora confirmed he’ll not have Jack back for the 2016 season as the linebacker has chosen to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
Jim Mora says Myles Jack has withdrawn from UCLA and will enter the NFL draft.

Pegged by most draft gurus as a first-round talent, where Jack falls in the draft will have everything to do with his recovery. If he can come back strong, showing no ill effects from the injury, then Jack has a chance to be selected in the middle to late first round.
