Eddy Pineiro was the prized prospect of the 2016 recruiting cycle. We all remember seeing former Gators coach Jim McElwain riding around with Pineiro the day after losing the 2015 SEC title game, and eventually landing Pineiro at Florida over Alabama.

Many of us have been a part of the “Ed-dy! Ed-dy! chants that have reverberated around Ben Hill Griffin Stadium the past two years.

According to The Gainesville Sun’s Robbie Andreu, Pineiro has informed Florida’s coaching staff that he will forgo his senior year of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft.

Pineiro, a junior college soccer player before coming to Florida, finished his collegiate career making 38 of 43 field goals and 56 of 58 extra points.

Earlier this month, Florida landed the commitment of the nation’s number two ranked kicker, Evan McPherson. McPherson appears to be the heir-apparent and is expected to sign his letter of intent tomorrow.
