BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -California receiver DeSean Jackson will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
Jackson, a star punt returner who had an underwhelming junior season as a receiver, waited until the last possible day to declare his long-assumed intention to leave the Golden Bears (7-6), who lost six of their final eight regular-season games.
Jackson had 65 receptions for 762 yards and six touchdowns this season while battling injuries. He returned just one punt for a touchdown in the season opener against Tennessee, giving him a Pac-10 record six punt returns for scores in his career.
Jackson had 59 catches for 1,060 yards and nine TDs in 2006. He finished his Cal career third in school history with 2,423 yards receiving and 22 TDs.
