 OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -Mississippi offensive tackle Michael Oher will skip his senior season and enter the 2008 NFL draft.
The all-Southeastern Conference player made the announcement in a statement issued by Ole Miss.
``I just felt it was time for me to move on and pursue options to do new things,'' Oher said. ``Attending Ole Miss was a positive experience for me, and I had a good time.''
Oher started 34 straight games for the Rebels in three years, leading the way for two consecutive 1,000-yard seasons by tailback BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
The 6-foot-5, 325-pound Memphis, Tenn., native was the subject of Michael Lewis' book, ``The Blind Side.'' The best-seller chronicled Oher's rise from homeless teenager to one of the most coveted recruits in the nation.
