Based on his post on Twitter on Wednesday night, Florida defensive end Cece Jefferson plans to return for his senior season rather than declare for the NFL draft.

Here’s Jefferson’s post on Twitter: “Senior Year about to be one to remember! Road to Atlanta! Go Gators!”

Jefferson (6-foot-1, 242 pounds) was one of the few standouts this past season, when he finished fourth on the Gators with 47 tackles. He led the team with 13.5 tackles for loss and recorded a team-high 4.5 sacks.

College players have until Jan. 15 to declare for the NFL draft.
