NC State senior linebacker Germaine Pratt will not play in the Gator Bowl; instead, he'll begin preparations for the National Football League.

Pratt posted a photo on his Instagram page of him with agent Erik Burkhardt appearing to have signed a contract, and a school official confirmed that Pratt won’t play in the Gator Bowl.

Burkhardt also represents former Wolfpack standouts Bradley Chubb and Jaylen Samuels.

A consensus first-team All-ACC selection, Pratt ranks second in the ACC with 9.45 tackles per game.  He joins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon as All-ACC players who won’t participate in the Gator Bowl.

NC State played one game this season without Pratt, defeating rival North Carolina 34-28 in overtime.  He was replaced in the lineup by sophomore linebacker Brock Miller, who tallied six tackles in the win.
