WASHINGTON (AP) — Maryland receiver Torrey Smith says he will enter the NFL draft.

Smith announced his intention following the Terrapins’ 51-20 victory over East Carolina in the Military Bowl on Wednesday.

Smith has one year of eligibility remaining but has already graduated. He said it is a tough decision, but that the fact that he has his degree makes outgoing coach Ralph Friedgen comfortable with the choice.

Smith tied for first in the Atlantic Coast Conference with 12 touchdown catches this season — including a school-record four last month against N.C. State. He had 152 career catches for 2,215 yards at Maryland, and his 19 touchdown receptions are second in school history.

Smith also holds the conference career record with 2,983 yards on kickoff returns.
