Bye Bye Saint Nick

On a sour day for Tar Heel fans across the state after Roy Williams' squad dropped a thriller to Boston College Sunday, junior wideout Hakeem Nicks announced he will declare for the 2009 NFL draft after pulling in 217 yards receiving in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Nicks is leaving UNC already holding 14 school records including yards in a season (1222) and touchdowns in a season (12).

“Carolina has been a special place for me,” said Nicks. “I want to thank my teammates, the coaching staff and the Tar Heel fans for supporting me during my three years in Chapel Hill."

The departure of Nicks and the graduation of Brooks Foster and Brandon Tate leaves Carolina's receiving corps severely depleted.

Here's a video of one of Nicks' greatest catches of his career.
