Bess, a three-year starter for the Warriors, is the school's career leader in receptions (293) and touchdowns (41).
The Oakland, Calif., native made the decision after draft evaluators said he would be likely to be picked in the second round.
``This is an opportunity I felt I couldn't pass up,'' Bess said. ``It's been a dream of mine to play in the National Football League and I've worked hard these past three years to get to this point.''
Bess was one of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan's favorite targets as the Warriors finished the regular season 12-0, the only undefeated team in major college football. Hawaii suffered its sole loss to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.
Brennan, who elected not to enter the draft last year and to return to Hawaii for his senior year this season, graduated last month.
