Colorado State WR Rashard Higgins jumps to NFL

Fort COLLINS, Colo. (AP) Colorado State junior receiver Rashard Higgins is entering the NFL draft.

The explosive wideout who goes by the nickname "Hollywood" announced his decision on Twitter late Wednesday night. He addressed his letter to "Ram Nation" and said there is "no place like home and y'all will forever have my heart."

Higgins leaves as the school's all-time leader in receptions, yards and touchdowns. Rams coach Mike Bobo wished him well on the CSU football Twitter page, posting a statement that says "Rashard will always be a Ram, and I have no doubt he will be successful as he joins his fellow former Rams proudly representing Colorado State in the NFL."
