USC receiver George Farmer enters NFL draft early

LOS ANGELES — Southern California receiver George Farmer has decided to skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Farmer announced his decision through the school Wednesday.

Farmer made little impact in four seasons with the Trojans, catching 30 passes for 363 yards and four touchdowns. After missing the entire 2013 season with a knee injury, he had 25 catches last season while starting four games.

Farmer never matched the USC achievements of his Serra High School teammates, star receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee. But Farmer decided to follow them in declaring early for the draft anyway.

Coach Steve Sarkisian says he wishes Farmer the best.

Farmer joins three other Trojans declaring early for the draft. Receiver Nelson Agholor, tailback Javorius Allen and defensive lineman Leonard Williams also left early.
