COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

It's not just a proud day for University of Georgia; it's also a proud day for the city of Columbus.

Carver High School graduate and former UGA linebacker Jarvis Jones will enter the NFL draft.

Jones informed the school Friday that he won't be returning for his senior year. He passed up a chance to leave school last season, opting to stick with the Bulldogs for the chance to win a championship. Georgia lost to Alabama 32-28 in the Southeastern Conference title game, just missing a chance to play for the BCS crown against top-ranked Notre Dame.

Jones made a quick decision, announcing his plans three days after a 45-31 victor over Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl. He is expected to be 1 of the top picks in the draft.

The 6-foot-3, 241-pounder played 26 games with Georgia after transferring from Southern Cal. He had 28 sacks, the third most in school history.
