STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Stanford free safety Ed Reynolds is forgoing his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.
Reynolds announced his decision through the school Tuesday. He had until Wednesday's deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft.
Reynolds ranked third on Stanford with 87 tackles and also had one interception last season to earn Pac-12 first-team honors for the second straight year. Quarterbacks often threw away from Reynolds after he led the Cardinal with six interceptions in 2012.
Reynolds is scheduled to graduate in the spring with a bachelor's degree in political science. He missed all of the 2011 season because of a knee injury suffered in spring practice, so he could've returned as a fifth-year senior.
