Someone congratulated him on Twitter, and a former Florida women's basketball player (Jordan Jones) that would know Alli well asked him if he has made a decision yet. I see a few different sites that list Alli as one of the Top 15 prospects in the CFL Draft, but haven't been able to find anything yet on when the draft will/did take place.

We have a top 15 pick and he isn't even playing!?
As best I can tell, the CFL Draft isn't until at least March.
This scouting service for the CFL has Alli as the No. 12 overall prospect. They even have a picture of him in a Florida uniform.

CFL Top 15 pick?..Frankie Hammond needs to be on the next bird North.
Did he ever play a snap? I think I may remember him blocking a few times. And somehow thats a top 15 pick? I didn't think the CFL was that bad.
I don't recall seeing him play on offense this season, but he played considerable snaps on special teams. If I remember right, he was one of the first ones in the end zone along with Debose in the Sugar Bowl.
Still don't see how that somehow translates to a top pick in anything. They've never seen him play.
Only certain players are draft-eligible for the CFL, I think that has as much to do with it as anything. From wikipedia:
48 players will be chosen from among eligible players from Canadian Universities across the country, as well as Canadian players playing in the NCAA.
That kinda limits the draft pool.

Oh wow I didn't realize he was Canadian.
He finally made something of himself........

Rumors that Stephen Alli is going to the CFL are false right now. I'm told that as of right now Alli plans to stay at #Florida.
I don't get why he would stay, dude has been here forever and he never sees the field on offense.
Isn't he a RS? Does he have his degree?
That's the only thing i could see keeping him here.
Apparently Silverstein has said the opposite.
GC has been all over the draft defections though, so...can't bash them. We'll see.
he gets his degree in May iirc so I don't think he stays beyond spring ball. Didn't he just get accepted into medical school somewhere?
Alli's career in academics (read: med school) down the road are much better than the CFL, so I'd have a hard time seeing him leaving for the CFL.
FWIW, Alli tweeted this a few weeks ago and still hasn't answered Jordan Jones about whether he's made up his mind.
Stephen Alli: Just because a door opens doesn't me you're supposed to walk through it #PrayAboutEverything
Can we just put him on some type Doogie Howser 'ship for next year and give his football one to Clark?
