  • Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen is expected to be one of the top receivers in April during the NFL Draft.

Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Allen finishes his career as the school’s all-time leader with 205 receptions. He ranks third with 2,570 yards receiving and seventh with 17 touchdown catches.

“I am grateful for all of the opportunities the University of California has provided me over the past three seasons,” Allen said in a statement. “I have always dreamed of having an opportunity to play in the NFL, and my time at Cal has helped me get to the point in my career where I believe I am ready to take that next step.”

Allen’s best season came as a sophomore when he had 98 receptions for 1,343 yards and six touchdowns. He had 61 catches for 737 yards and six TDs this season before missing the final three games with a left knee injury.

Allen is expected to be one of the top receivers in April’s draft.
