UGASports.com has learned that both Charles Grant and Randy McMichael have decided to turn professional early and forgo their senior seasons in Athens. While players have until January 11 to make a final decision and notify the NFL in writing of their draft status, it is believed that both players will officially make UGA coaches aware of their intentions as soon as tomorrow.
As UGASports.com first reported, both players have apparently received favorable feedback from the College Advisory Board, which is an NFL panel, polled on their behalf.
