TCU wide receiver Josh Boyce will forego his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2013 NFL draft.
Boyce, who enrolled early at TCU in spring 2009, earned his degree in December, but had one more year of NCAA eligibility. He is the first TCU Horned Frog to leave early for the NFL draft since Cory Rodgers in 2005.
NFLDraftScout.com ranks him as the 15th best eligible receiver going into the draft. Boyce had 66 receptions, TCU's single-season record, for 891 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He was an honorable mention for the All-Big 12 awards.
Boyce leaves TCU as the all-time school leader in touchdown catches (22), second all-time in receiving yards (2,535) and third all-time in receptions (161).
Boyce’s decision to declare for the draft came soon after All-America cornerback Jason Verrett’s decision to remain at TCU for his senior year. The cornerback from Fairfield, Calif., led the nation in passes defended (22) and led the Big 12 in interceptions (6).
Earlier this off-season, TCU lost linebackers coach Randy Shannon and wide receivers coach Trey Haverty. Shannon left for the same position at Arkansas, while Haverty took a position with Texas Tech.
