Multiple sources have confirmed that Pitt sophomore tailback Dion Lewis is "likely" to forgo his last two seasons and head to the NFL draft.
Lewis filed papers with the NFL earlier this season to see what his draft status would be and he was told last week that he would be a third round pick.
Lewis is expected to make an official announcement on the matter next week and sources said unless he has a last minute change of heart he will be playing his final game as a Panther Saturday against Kentucky in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
