      Tweets indicate USC's Sanders to enter NFL draft

      According to his Twitter account, USC receiver Ace Sanders may be leaving school early to enter the NFL draft.

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - South Carolina receiver and explosive return specialist Ace Sanders may have made a move that could send him to the 2013 NFL draft.

      A week after announcing on his Instagram account that he would be staying in school, Sanders, a junior, took to his Twitter account Tuesday saying "welcome to the real world...Time to make it happen" and describing the day as "full of emotion" for him.

      "Thank you everyone apart of #GamecockNation," tweeted Sanders. "So much support! Y'all don't know how much that means to me!!!! I love you all!!!!"

      Despite those comments, and multiple tweets from teammates congratulating him, Sanders has not declared outright that he is entering the NFL draft.

      There has also been no official statement from the University of South Carolina about Sanders' status with the team.
