LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory is declaring for the NFL draft.
The school’s sports information department confirmed Gregory’s decision, which was first reported by ESPN on Tuesday.
Gregory was a first-team All-Big Ten pick as a junior after leading the Cornhuskers with seven sacks. He was fourth on the team with 54 tackles, including 10 for losses. He also blocked two kicks. He missed or was limited in four games because of injury.
Gregory is considered one of the nation’s top pass rushers, and he’s been projected to be a high first-round draft pick. The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Gregory finished his two-year Nebraska career with 17.5 sacks after transferring from Arizona Western Community College.
