CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Virginia offensive guard Branden Albert will forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.
Cavaliers coach Al Groh said Albert informed him of his decision on Wednesday.
``We're supportive of whatever is in his best interest,'' Groh told The Associated Press.
The 23-year-old Albert, a 6-foot-7, 310-pound third-team All-American, started all 37 games that he played with the Cavaliers.
Virginia lost to Texas Tech 31-28 in the Gator Bowl on Tuesday.
