The Washington football program had an incredible 2016 campaign. Despite falling short in the College Football Playoff, the Huskies claimed the Pac-12 Championship and finished with a 12-2 record.
Unfortunately for the Huskies, if they want to parlay that success into another impressive run in 2017, they will have to do so without stars John Ross and Budda Baker.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this week that Ross, one of the top deep threats in the nation, and Baker, a star safety, are set to forgo their final year of eligibility to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
This season, Ross recorded 81 catches for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns.
Baker, meanwhile, led the Huskies with 71 tackles and 10 tackles for loss, along with three sacks and two interceptions.
Both players are currently projected to be selected within the first two rounds of April’s draft.
