CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson record-setting receiver DeAndre Hopkins is heading to the NFL and skipping his final season of college.

Hopkins said on Twitter on Thursday that while he enjoyed his time with the Tigers, he is ready for the next level. Clemson athletics spokesman Tim Bourret confirmed that Hopkins is making himself eligible for the NFL draft in April.

Hopkins set single season school records with 1,408 yards on 82 catches, and his 18 touchdown grabs were an Atlantic Coast Conference record.

On Wednesday, ACC player of the year Tajh Boyd declared he would return for his final season at quarterback for Clemson.
