PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State defensive end Scott Crichton has decided to forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound junior announced his decision Friday in an e-mail sent by his attorney, Nelson Fraley. Crichton had 7.5 sacks in 2013 and forced a key fumble in Oregon State's win in the Hawaii Bowl.

Crichton is the second Beaver this week to announce he's leaving school early to turn pro, joining wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
