Pittsburgh defensive end Greg Romeus said Wednesday he will pass on the NFL draft to stay in school.

"I want to gain another year of experience and have another shot at the Big East title," Romeus told ESPN's Joe Schad.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound Romeus was considered a potential first-round pick as a junior. He had 135 tackles and an interception in Pitt's 10-3 season, which culminated in a victory over North Carolina in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
