STANFORD, Calif. — Stanford defensive lineman Harrison Phillips will bypass his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.

Phillips announced his decision on Thursday.

Phillips was a third-team All-American this season when he had 14 1/2 tackles for loss and 7 1/2 sacks for the Cardinal.

Phillips had one year of eligibility remaining because he had a season-ending knee injury in the 2015 opener and was eligible for a medical redshirt.

Stanford tight end Dalton Schultz declared for the draft earlier this week. The Cardinal are still waiting for a decision from star running back and Heisman runner-up Bryce Love.
