    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State running back Nyheim Hines and offensive tackle Will Richardson are skipping their final seasons to enter the NFL draft.

    The school announced both players' decisions Friday. Hines ran for 1,112 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the nine-win Wolfpack and was a first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick by The Associated Press. He averaged 143.7 all-purpose yards per game, leading the ACC and ranking fifth among power-conference players.

    Hines was also a Wolfpack track star. He was an ACC champion and all-American running the leadoff leg for the school's 4x100-meter relay team. He also was an all-conference pick for the 100- and 60-meter events.

    Richardson played in 11 games this season and did not allow a sack or quarterback pressure.

    The school said both players plan to complete their coursework for degrees.
