Oklahoma junior cornerback Reggie Smith has joined teammates Malcolm Kelly and Curtis Lofton in deciding to enter his name in the NFL Draft, OU head coach Bob Stoops confirmed Tuesday.

"Reggie was a good player for us and we wish him the best," Stoops said.

Smith, who missed the Fiesta Bowl with a toe injury, started 13 games in 2007. He ranked No. 4 on the team with 78 tackles. He logged three interceptions and one fumble recovery, which he returned 61 yards for a touchdown against Miami.

He was a first team All-Big 12 selection by the league coaches and the Associated Press.

The Edmond, Okla., native played in 39 games at OU with 36 starts. He finished with 165 career tackles and eight interceptions.

Kelly and Lofton, also both juniors, declared earlier. Kelly, a receiver, made his announcement last Thursday, while Lofton, a linebacker, announced his intentions Monday.
