EUGENE, Ore. -- Cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu says he will stay at Oregon for his senior season.

Ekpre-Olomu was the Ducks' second-leading tackler with 84 stops this past season. He also had three interceptions.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound California native announced his decision Monday on GoDucks.com, the school's athletic website.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and center Hroniss Grasu announced earlier that they would also return next season.

Running back De-Anthony Thomas and cornerback Terrance Mitchell have decided to leave the team early and declare for the NFL draft.

With seven career interceptions, he's five shy of breaking into Oregon's career top 10.
