                 === Texas Tech TE Amaro to enter NFL draft ===
 
 Lubbock,  TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Texas Tech's record-breaking tight end Jace
 Amaro will forego his senior season and declare for the NFL draft.
 
 Amaro  broke  the NCAA all-time  record for receiving yards  in a season for a
 tight  end with  1,352 during his junior campaign, eclipsing the mark of 1,329
 set  by  Rice's James  Casey in  2008. Amaro finished  with 106 receptions and
 seven touchdowns.
 
 The  decision came after racking up 112 yards on eight catches in Texas Tech's
 37-23 win over No. 16 Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl.
 
 "I  feel like it was the best decision for me personally," said Amaro. "It was
 a  really  hard decision for me  because I love  all these guys. They mean the
 world to me, and of course I want to come back. At the same time it's just too
 much of an opportunity to pass up."
 
 Amaro  joins North  Carolina's Eric  Ebron and  Washington's Austin  Seferian-
 Jenkins in a young, talented tight end class.
