TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama running back Mark Ingram, defensive lineman Marcell Dareus and wide receiver Julio Jones say they're entering the NFL draft.
However, linebacker Dont'a Hightower says he is returning to school.
The four announced their decisions Friday. Coach Nick Saban says each player made the right decision.
Ingram won the Heisman during Alabama's national championship season, but was hampered part of this season as he recovered from knee surgery. The 6-foot-4, 306-pound Dareus was the star in Alabama's championship win over Texas and had 34 tackles this year as a premier pass rusher.
Jones led all Crimson Tide receivers with 1,133 yards and seven touchdowns this season.
