Fluker: Haven’t thought about turning pro

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Crimson Tide offensive tackle D.J. Fluker said tonight he hasn’t given thought to whether he will turn pro after the season.

“Right now, that’s a family decision between us and coach,” Fluker said. “I haven’t thought about it. Right now, the main thing is to focus on my team and helping my teammates out. It really hasn’t been on my mind.”

Fluker is a fourth-year junior who is listed at 6-foot-6 and 335 pounds. After redshirting his freshman season, he has started 35 games. The Associated Press named him second-team All-American this year.

The National Football Post has listed Fluker as the 19th player taken in its mock first round. However, cbssports.com’s draft analysts haven’t included Fluker in their mock first rounds.

Teammates AJ McCarron, the starting quarterback, and linebacker C.J. Mosley have announced they will remain for their senior season. Cornerback Dee Milliner and running back Eddie Lacy have said they’ll decide later.
