SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller is skipping his senior season and entering the NFL draft.

Fuller had said he planned to return but announced Sunday he had changed his mind. He said on Twitter that after long consideration he believes "it is in my best interest" to leave school early.

Fuller becomes the 12th Notre Dame underclassman to declare for the draft since the NFL started allowing it in 1989. Defensive end Stephon Tuitt, Troy Niklas and George Atkinson declared following the 2013 season.

Fuller led the Irish in receiving this year with 62 catches for 1,258 yards and 14 touchdowns.
