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.

Collie tied the NCAA record in 2008 with 11 consecutive games of 100 or more receiving yards. He was selected as a second-team AP All-American.

Collie earned second-team All-MWC honors with 56 catches for 946 yards as a sophomore after returning from a two-year Mormon church mission in Argentina.
