COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- It looks like Clemson star C.J. Spiller will take his latest career decision down to the wire.
Clemson athletic spokesman Tim Bourret said he didn't expect Spiller to announce Wednesday whether he would enter the NFL draft or return for his senior season. The deadline for third-year sophomores or juniors is Thursday.
It isn't the first time the lightning-fast Spiller has kept fans in suspense. A star at Union County High School in Lake Butler, Fla., Spiller shocked many when he chose to play for the Tigers over nearby Florida or Florida State.
Then when it looked like he might transfer to the Gators after his freshman season, he chose to stay at Clemson. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Spiller led Clemson with 1,770 all-purpose yards and accounted for 11 touchdowns this season.
