PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State defensive tackle Hercules Mata'afa is skipping his senior year and will enter the NFL draft.

The Lahaina, Hawaii, native announced on Twitter that he will seek a pro job on the heels of a dominant junior season. He led the Pac-12 Conference in sacks at 10.5 and tackles for loss at 22.5.

Mata'afa, a dominant pass rusher, was an All-America selection for the first time this season.
