PROVO, Utah (AP) - Brigham Young receiver Austin Collie says he will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

The 6'2", 206-pound Collie from El Dorado Hills, Calif., led the nation in total receiving yards with 1,538 and receiving yards per game with an average of 118.31 as a junior. He had 106 receptions and 15 touchdowns.

Collie averaged 162.46 yards per game to rank 12th in the nation while helping BYU to a 10-3 record and No. 16 ranking in the final BCS standings.
