USC wide receiver Marqise Lee won't be around for the first year of the Steve Sarkisian era with the program.

That's because Lee has announced he'll forgo his senior season with the Trojans and enter the NFL draft.

Lee tweeted his decision on Friday night.

The junior wideout struggled through an injury-plagued 2013 season but finished with 57 catches for 791 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He won the Biletnikoff Award in 2012 after amassing 118 catches for 1,721 yards and 14 scores through the air. For his three-year USC career, Lee finishes with 248 catches, 3,655 receiving yards and 29 touchdowns.

Lee is the the fourth junior to leave the USC program early. Safety Dion Bailey, defensive lineman George Uko and offensive lineman Marcus Martin also opted to test the NFL waters.
