USC wide receiver Marqise Lee will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft, he announced on Twitter on Friday night.

Lee struggled with knee injuries this season and missed three games. He was limited to four touchdowns, two of which came in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl.

He finishes his USC career with 29 receiving touchdowns in three seasons.

Lee is rated as the second-best wide receiver after Clemson's Sammy Watkins by Scouts Inc. ESPN college football and NFL draft analyst Todd McShay projects him as the No. 15 pick in his mock draft.

Lee joins Trojans safety Dion Bailey, defensive lineman George Uko and center Marcus Martin in the draft.
