USC linebacker Su’a Cravens appears on track for an opportunity to enter the 2016 NFL draft.

But the junior said Friday that his focus was on the 2015 season.

“Of course that’s in the back of my mind,” he said during an interview at Pac-12 Conference media day. “But I can’t put too much focus on that until I see how the season goes and how we really do this year.

“I mean that’s not my main priority. I want to win this year and that’s really the only thing that’s going to be on my mind.”


Four players with eligibility remaining left after the 2014 season, including defensive lineman Leonard Williams, running back Javorius Allen and receivers Nelson Agholor and George Farmer.

The 6-foot-1 Cravens was a Freshman All-American safety. He was all-conference at linebacker last season after making 17 tackles for losses and intercepting three passes.

Cravens is up to 232 pounds after dropping to 198 during the summer following an illness and dental surgery.

“Not a good combination,” he said.
