PISCATAWAY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Rutgers cornerback Logan Ryan will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

The junior made the announcement on Monday at a campus news conference.

Ryan was a two-time All-Big East selection and is the fifth Rutgers player since 2008 to leave school early and enter the NFL draft, joining Ray Rice, Kenny Britt, Anthony Davis and Mohamed Sanu.

Ryan finished second on the Scarlet Knights with 94 tackles this season and was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the top defensive back in the nation. He was the only player this season with at least 90 tackles, four interceptions and 18 passes defended.

Ryan is a native of Berlin, New Jersey.
