NFL Draft Early Entrants

HONOLULU (Ticker) -- Hawaii wide receiver Ryan Grice-Mullins announced Wednesday that he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

Mullins is the second receiver to announce he is entering the draft after junior Davone Bess declared last week.

Mullins was one of several receivers to benefit from playing with Heisman Trophy finalist quarterback Colt Brennan. The 5-11, 180-pound Mullins led the team with 1,372 yards and was second in catches (106) and touchdowns (12).

"This was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make in my life for the simple fact that I have so much love for this university and the islands," Grice-Mullins said. "Because of what they did for me, I truly believe I grew as a man here. But in the end, I felt I had to leave and it's a decision I made with my parents. It's the right time." Mullins, Bess and Jason Rivers helped the Warriors (12-1) become just the second Football Subdivision team to have three 1,000-yard receivers.
