Southern California standout wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster announced Saturday that he is bypassing his senior season and declaring for the NFL Draft.

Smith-Schuster is the fourth-ranked receiver and 29th overall prospect, according to NFLDraftScout.com.

"This was a very difficult decision to make," Smith-Schuster wrote on his Twitter feed. "I have loved my time at USC and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Playing for USC was truly a dream come true, and I am proud of what we were able to accomplish in three years."

Smith-Schuster ranks fourth in USC history with 216 career receptions. He caught 25 touchdown passes and accumulated 3,092 yards in his three seasons.

Smith-Schuster caught 70 passes for 914 yards and 10 scores this season. He had seven receptions for 133 yards and one touchdown in USC's 52-49 victory over Penn State in the Rose Bowl.

Trojans all-purpose star Adoree' Jackson has yet to announce his decision. The Thorpe Award winner is the 10th-rated cornerback and 54th overall prospect, according to NFLDraftScout.com.
