UCF  quarterback Blake Bortles will declare for this year's NFL draft, a source confirmed Sunday to ESPN's Joe Schad.

The Orlando Sentinel , citing a source with direct knowledge of Bortles' decision, earlier reported Bortles would forgo his last year of eligibility.

The redshirt junior is expected to make his decision official during a Monday morning announcement.

Bortles is considered one of the top quarterback prospects in this year's draft class.

Scouts Inc. lists Bortles as the second quarterback (behind  Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater) and 15th overall prospect.

Bortles passed for 3,581 while leading 12-1 UCF to an American Athletic Conference title and a win in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

He threw 25 touchdown passes for the second straight year, and he also ran for six touchdowns this season.
