Penn State's Yetur Gross-Matos to enter draft, plans to play in bowl

Penn State junior defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos announced Tuesday that he will enter the 2020 NFL draft.

Gross-Matos, a first-team selection for the All-Big Ten defensive team, led the Nittany Lions with 8.5 sacks and 14 tackles for loss this season. He is ranked third on ESPN draft insider Mel Kiper's list of defensive ends for the 2020 draft.

Gross-Matos made the announcement in a tweet Tuesday and said he plans to play for No. 10-ranked Penn State in a bowl game.

Two other Nittany Lions, center Michal Menet and tight end Pat Freiermuth, announced they will return next season.
