Phillip, AP)Texas A&M sophomore Mike Evans, along with juniors Brandin Cooks of Oregon State and Allen Robinson of Penn State announced their intention to forego their remaining college eligibility.

Evans’ decision is hardly a surprise. Reports surfaced late last week that he and A&M quarterback Johnny Maniel would be turning pro.

In two seasons with the Aggies, the 6-foot-5, 218-pound Evans caught 151 passes for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns. He averaged more than 20 yards per reception this season.

Cooks (5-10, 186) the 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner, led the nation with 1,730 receiving yards. He is second in receptions (128) and receiving touchdowns (16).

Robinson (6-3, 210), the Big Ten receiver of the year each of the past two seasons, caught 97 passes 1,432 and six touchdowns in 2013. He ranks second in receptions (177) and third in receiving yardage (2,474) on Penn State’s all-time lists.

“It was a great honor to play at Penn State,” Robinson said in a release. “I am blessed to have played with, and for, the people in the Penn State football program.

“This is a decision that I believe is best for my family and I, and I wish all the best to the University and all my teammates.”

Robinson is projected as a first-round selection.

“I’ve done everything I can at the University of Washington,” he said follow the Huskies’ 31-16 victory over BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco. “I know I’m ready for the NFL.”

Seferian-Jenkins, who won the 2013 Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end, caught 36 passes for 450 yards and eight touchdowns this season. In his three seasons with the Huskies, he caught 146 passes for 1,840 yards and 21 scores.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound junior is expected to be one of the top tight ends chosen in the draft and reportedly received a second-round grade from NFL evaluators.

He is the fourth underclassmen tight end to declare for the draft, joining Cal’s Richard Rodgers, North Carolina’s Eric Ebron and Oregon’s Colt Lyerla.

UPDATE: Another Washington junior – running back Bishop Sankey – announced that he will also enter the 2014 Draft.

“The time is right,” Sankey said. “I’ve proven what I needed to prove. I have to look at the position I play and the number of carries.”

Sankey finished the season third in the nation in rushing with 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns, including 95 yards and two TDs against BYU in the Kraft Hunger Bowl.

The 5-foot-10, 203-pound Sankey was one of only four backs to average over 25 carries per game in 2013.

Last week Sankey received a third-round grade from the NFL draft advisory committee.
