Gholston discusses decision in open letter

Will Gholston discussed his decision to go pro in an open letter, which was released by MSU today. 

Here are his remarks.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with Michigan State University, its athletic department as well as its football program for their endless support and commitment to me as a student-athlete.

For the past three years I have made East Lansing my home and I have created friendships and memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am so grateful and fortunate to even be in the position that I am today and I know none of this would even be possible without the help and support of Spartan Nation.

In the days since our Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl victory, I have decided to forgo my senior year at Michigan State and declare for the 2013 NFL Draft. While I know I still have a great deal to accomplish, I am very excited about the challenges that the future holds and I promise to always represent the University with class, dignity, and professionalism.

From Coach Dantonio, to our entire staff, to my incredible teammates, to each of you unbelievable fans that back us each and every day, I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    May William Gholston have a long and prolific NFL career!

    As an MSU alumnus, I can only hope the MSU athletic department learn to plan a head with each potential underclassmen whom may declare for early entry to the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL. The opportunity for underclass MSU student athletes to declare is a testament to the preparation and quality MSU coaching staffs.

    Mr. Lewandowski’s assistance in preparing a proper press conference for future announcements could enhance MSU’s image and display an atmosphere celebrating the student athletes accomplishments – thus attracting desirable recruits & sustaining the programs growth.
