STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Stanford receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside will skip his senior season to declare for the NFL draft.
Arcega-Whiteside announced his decision Friday, thanking his coaches, teammates and family members.
Arcega-Whiteside caught 63 passes for 1,059 yards and 14 touchdowns this season for the Cardinal. The 6-foot-3 Arcega-Whiteside is dangerous in the red zone with his size and jumping ability and is projected as a second-day selection in the draft.
His 23 TD catches the past two seasons are the third most in college football in that span.
Arcega-Whiteside is the third Stanford player to declare for the draft. He joins guard Nate Herbig and tight end Kaden Smith.
