From the Associated Press and our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

AP -
The father of South Carolina defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles says his son will leave school after his junior season to enter the NFL draft.

Buddy Quarles said by phone Wednesday his son had talked with Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier and defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward about his decision. Buddy Quarles says Spurrier told his son that he could walk with the seniors and other players leaving early at South Carolina's final home game against Clemson on Nov. 30.

Quarles, 6-foot-4, 298-pounds, leads the team with seven sacks and 11 tackles for loss. He's third in the SEC in sacks.

He won't be South Carolina's only loss along the defensive line as junior end Jadeveon Clowney has said for almost a year that he would enter the draft after this season.
