TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona receiver Cayleb Jones announced he will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

Jones made the announcement via Twitter on Sunday.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Jones was a tough matchup for opposing defenses during his two seasons in Arizona.

He caught 73 passes for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore and had 55 catches for 904 yards and five touchdowns last season.

Jones played 10 games as a reserve receiver at Texas as a freshman before sitting out the 2013 at Arizona as a transfer.
