Baldwin, Lewis and Hynoski to enter draft

Three underclassmen members of the Pitt football team will forgo their remaining collegiate eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft. Junior receiver Jon Baldwin, junior fullback Henry Hynoski and sophomore tailback Dion Lewis announced their decisions to turn pro today.

Baldwin, a two-time first-team All-Big East performer, finished the season with 53 catches for 822 yards and five touchdowns. His career receiving yardage total of 2,337 ranks sixth all-time at Pitt, while his receptions total of 128 ranks eighth.

Hynoski was Pitt’s starting fullback each of the past two years. This past season he rushed 12 times for 33 yards and caught 25 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown.

Lewis rushed for 2,860 yards in just two seasons at Pitt, eclipsing former standout LeSean McCoy’s school record for rushing yards as a freshman and sophomore. (McCoy had 2,816 yards from 2007-08.) Lewis ranks fourth overall on the Panthers’ career rushing list.

He had 1,799 yards as a freshman en route to Big East Offensive Player of the Year, Big East Rookie of the Year and National Freshman of the Year accolades. Lewis was named the game’s MVP in each of Pitt’s bowl victories the past two seasons, including this year’s BBVA Compass Bowl when he rushed for 105 yards and a TD in a 27-10 win over Kentucky.
