Los Angeles, CA – University of Southern California cornerback Nickell Robey announced Monday that will forego his senior season and declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.
A 3-year starter for the Trojans, Robey earned second team All-Pac-12 honors this past season after recording 52 tackles, one interception and five passes defensed. The Florida native also averaged 9.5 yards on eight punt returns, and picked off a total of seven passes during his tenure at USC.
Robey is USC's second early entrant for the upcoming draft, with wide receiver Robert Woods announcing his intentions following the Trojans' loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl.
