Goodnight Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Pouncey Stays

[Update] Gatorzone has quotes from the twins;

“This is one of the biggest decisions I have ever made in my life,” Maurkice Pouncey said. “I am glad that my brother and I made the decision to be Gators. God gave us the knowledge, strength and ability to be great players, but it is now time for my brother and me to part ways.”

“I’m very excited to come back and wear the Orange and Blue for the 2010 season,” said Mike Pouncey. “I’m looking forward to being a leader on this team, having the opportunity to play center and continuing to learn from Coach Steve Addazio. It has been an honor to play here, so I can’t wait to run out into The Swamp for another year.”

[Update] Maurkice Pouncey's mom confirms he is to the pros, according to Orlando Sentinel's Jeremy Fowler.

ESPN reports that Maurkice Pouncey will enter the NFL Draft. Pouncey won the Rimington Trophy as best center, but is seen as a late first round/early second round pick. Mike Pouncey, as a guard, is rated much lower. Mike will now have to decide to gamble and leave UF, or stay and compete to play center. UF does have Sam Robey, who impressed in training camp last year as a center.
