Drake London is going pro.
This week, the USC star wide receiver announced he would be forgoing his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2022 NFL Draft after a stellar junior campaign in Los Angeles.
“It’s been a true blessing to compete as a Trojan over the past three seasons,” London wrote in a letter on social media. “You welcomed me with open arms and I will forever be grateful for the love you’ve shown me. I will never forget our time together and all the people I’ve forged lifelong bonds with. To my coaches and teammates, thank you for pushing me each and every day. I would not be in the position I am today without you all.”
To the best University in the world, Thank you for everything! Fight on forever!

“To my family — thank you for being there every step of the way. Your support has fueled me and I’m thankful I have the best support system in the world. I cannot wait to get started on the next chapter in my life. I’m extremely excited to announce that I am declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft.”
London finishes his Trojans career with 160 catches for 2,153 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The 6-foot-5 pass catcher is widely regarded as one of the top receivers in the 2022 draft class, so it will be interesting to see where he ultimately lands.
