Josh Bullocks Leaves For NFL

By  | 

Nebraska safety Josh Bullocks said Wednesday he will skip his senior season and enter the N-F-L Draft.

Bullocks was first-team All-Big 12 in 2003 after snagging a conference record ten interceptions. He says he decided to go pro to help his family financially.

Bullocks is the second member of the Nebraska secondary to make himself draft-eligible. Cornerback Fabian Washington announced earlier this month that he would forego his senior season.

Bullocks says coaching changes and the Nebraska's struggles in 2004 were not the reason he decided to leave.

Nebraska coach Bill Callahan was not immediately available for comment.

After a breakout year in 2003, Bullocks grabbed just two interceptions in 2004.
