The Oklahoma Sooners continue to lose underclassmen to the NFL Draft.

Earlier this week wide receiver Kenny Stills and defensive back Tony Jefferson opted to skip their senior year with the Sooners. On Wednesday, linebacker Tom Wort joined them.

"We wish Tom the very best as he concludes his time at the University of Oklahoma," coach Bob Stoops said. "Tom has earned his degree and informed me that he plans to declare for the NFL Draft."

The 6-0, 237-pound Wort started 33 games in his three years with the Sooners. He had 10 sacks in his three years and totaled more than 50 tackles in each of his three years.
