PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State defensive end Scott Crichton has decided to forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-3, 265-pound junior announced his decision Friday in an email sent by his attorney, Nelson Fraley. Crichton had 7½ sacks in 2013 and forced a key fumble in Oregon State's win in the Hawaii Bowl.
Crichton is the second Beavers player this week to announce he's leaving school early to turn pro, joining All-America wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
