The TCU Horned Frogs will be loaded with returning starters when they begin their second season of Big 12 play this fall.

One of those won't be receiver Josh Boyce.

Boyce, who is among the program's all-time leaders in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions, has decided to declare for the NFL Draft and give up his final year of eligibility.

Boyce graduated from school in December.

"Josh Boyce, with his TCU degree in hand, will head to the NFL and forego his senior season of eligibility at TCU," the school said in a statement.

Along with the degree, Boyce is taking the school's all-time mark for receiving touchdowns with 22.

Boyce led the Frogs in receptions this season with 66, receiving yards (891) and touchdown catches (seven). He was also TCU's leading receiver as a sophomore while earning first team All-Mountain West Conference honors.
