NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma Sooners defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has decided to skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
The school announced McCoy's decision Friday. He said he made his decision around midseason when he realized he would have enough college credits to graduate.
Coach Bob Stoops called McCoy's decision a good one because of McCoy's maturity and academic success.
McCoy will play his final game as a Sooner against Stanford in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 31.
