LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA defensive tackle Kenny Clark plans to skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Clark announced his intentions Monday in a post on his Twitter account.

The 310-pound Clark made the all-Pac-12 first team this season, anchoring the Bruins' defense with a combination of size, speed and run-stopping prowess.

He had 47 tackles and six sacks as a junior, capping his standout season with eight tackles in the Bruins' upset loss to Nebraska in the Foster Farms Bowl last Saturday.

Clark also started all 13 games as a sophomore last season.
