BYU football: Harvey Unga entering NFL supplemental draft

Published: Wednesday, June 16 2010 10:00 a.m. MDT

It appears former BYU running back Harvey Unga has made a decision about his future.

According to profootballtalk.com, Unga, the Cougars' all-time leading rusher, is entering the NFL supplemental draft.

Unga withdrew from school in April for violating the honor code. BYU officials would not allow him to apply for re-admittance to school until January at the soonest.

The supplemental draft is scheduled for July.

According to the website, "The supplemental draft unfolds like a silent auction, with teams submitting at the start of each 'round' the name of any player they'd like to select. Priority is pre-determined based on 2009 records. Any team that obtains a player via the supplemental draft sacrifices the corresponding draft pick from the following year's entry draft."
