CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina receiver Hakeem Nicks plans to skip his final season and enter the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound junior owns the school's career records for catches, receiving yards and touchdown receptions. He also set single-season records this year with 1,222 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns.

Nicks had eight catches for a school bowl-record 217 yards and three touchdowns in the Meineke Bowl loss to West Virginia.
