(Yes, that was bad. Just move on and pretend it never happened.)
A mere 44 receptions shy of setting the Div. 1-A’s all-time receiving record, Toledo’s Eric Page will instead add his name into the NFL draft mix.
Ahead of a press conference that was scheduled for Friday morning, the Rockets wide receiver confirmed to the Toledo Free Press that he has decided to forego his senior season and make himself available for the NFL draft.
“It’s always been my dream to play in the NFL and I think right now is a great opportunity for me,” Page told the Free Press. “This would have never been able to happen without my teammates, coaches and my family. …
“I have had the best three years [in my] hometown and I want to thank everyone for the support and believing in me.”
Page finishes his three-year career with 306 receptions. Ryan Broyles set the 1-A standard earlier this year with 349 during the four years he saw the field at Oklahoma.
The 5-10, 180-pound Page also finished his time at Toledo with 3,446 receiving and 31 total touchdowns — 25 receiving, four on kickoff returns, one on punt returns and one rushing.
