JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Ryan Perrilloux says he’s returning to Jacksonville State for his senior year.

The Gamecocks’ quarterback who transferred from LSU said he wants to win a championship.

Perrilloux said Tuesday he was told by the NFL Advisory Board that he would not likely be drafted in the first three rounds.

He called the assessment “more than fair.”

In his first year as a starter, Perriloux led Jacksonville State to an 8-3 record and a 2nd place finish in the Ohio Valley Conference.
