Following in the footsteps of star quarterback Deshaun Watson, Clemson running back Wayne Gallman has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
The decision comes less than 24 hours after the Tigers topped the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide to become the kings of the college football world.
Gallman confirmed his decision with a brief statement on social media.
“Thank you Clemson for all the love and support I’ve received through the years,” Gallman wrote. “This journey has had its ups and downs, but I am completely grateful for everything I’ve experienced. But now it’s time to move on.”
Gallman finished the 2016 campaign with 1,133 yards and 17 touchdowns. He finishes out his time at Clemson with 3,429 yards and 34 scores.
In a loaded 2017 running back class, Gallman is currently projected to be a mid-round pick.
