After initially indicating that he would return to Notre Dame for his senior season, Will Fuller -- one of the top wide receiver prospects in college football -- has changed his mind and will apply for early entry into the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fuller made the announcement of his draft intentions on Twitter on Sunday.

"It has been a lifelong dream to play football in the NFL," Fuller wrote. "After taking all of this into lengthy consideration, I believe it is in my best interest to forgo my senior season and enter the 2016 draft."

Fuller finished his junior season with 1,258 yards and 14 receiving touchdowns. He had six receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown in Notre Dame's 44-28 loss to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year's Day.

Fuller's draft announcement came just a day after Fighting Irish running back C.J. Prosise announced that he will apply for early entry into the 2016 draft. Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley has announced intentions to apply for early entry as well.
