Miami's large NFL representation likely grew on Monday with the announcement that defensive tackle Marcus Forston and wide receiver Tommy Streeter would make themselves eligible for the 2012 NFL Draft.
CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman reports that Forston and Streeter - both juniors - plan to sign with Drew Rosenhaus and begin preparing for April's NFL Draft. Streeter led the Hurricanes in all major receiving statistics this season, pulling in 46 catches for 811 yards and eight touchdowns. According to the Miami Herald, the star wide receiver had a long meeting with head coach Al Golden to discuss the possibilities of entering the draft.
Streeter's size and speed will give him plenty of opportunities to impress scouts at the combine, at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds the junior combines his size with reported sub-4.4 speed to give himself the opportunity to join the long list of successful NFL receivers to come from The U.
Forston's exit seems like much less of a surprise to those around the Miami program. After an outstanding freshman campaign in 2008, the talented defensive lineman has struggled to stay on the field. Injuries ended his 2009 and 2011 seasons, though his performance when healthy has been active and dominant.
