Following Monday night’s national championship victory for the Clemson football program, another member of the Tigers has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
On Wednesday, wide receiver Artivis Scott became the latest Clemson player to enter the draft, joining star quarterback Deshaun Watson and running back Wayne Gallman.
Scott announced his intentions in a brief statement on social media.
“I would like to say thank you to all the coaches and staff who have given me an opportunity to play ball here at Clemson. I had an unbelievable time here and accomplished a lot of things I wouldn’t imagine and I’m thankful for that, Scott wrote. “I will be going to the next level.
“I prayed about it and I feel that this is the best choice for me and my family. Who knows what will happen but I put my trust in God. Thank you to the Clemson family. Love you all.”
Scott finished the season with 76 catches for 614 yards and five touchdowns. Scott’s career at Clemson ends with 245 catches, 2,480 yards and 19 scores.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound pass catcher is currently projected as a mid-round pick.
