BATON ROUGE - LSU announced today safety Eric Reid will forgo his senior season and instead go out for the 2013 NFL Draft.

Reid was a first-team All-America selection in 2012. He finished third on the team in tackles with 91, and had seven pass breakups, two pass interceptions, one tackle for loss and a recovered fumble.

"This was a very difficult decision because I always wanted to be a Tiger and I love LSU," Reid said today in a university-issued statement. "But, after careful consideration and talking with my family, I feel like this is the right time to make this decision."

Reid and linebacker Kevin Minter are LSU's only early draft entries at this point.
