COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Maryland record-breaking receiver DJ Moore will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Moore was selected first-team All-Big Ten after setting a school record with 80 catches for 1,033 yards. He also scored eight touchdowns.

Moore ends his Maryland career with 146 receptions, fifth-most in school history. His 17 TD catches rank fourth, and he is only the fifth Terrapin to amass more than 2,000 yards receiving.

Maryland coach DJ Durkin says, "We'll miss him as a member of our team, but could not be more proud to have him represent us in the NFL."

Moore excelled in 2017 even though Maryland used five quarterbacks and finished 4-8.

He says, "I have had an incredible three years playing for the Terps and I will truly miss playing in front of our fans."
