Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy announces 2020 decision
Jerry Jeudy is off to the NFL.
The star junior wide receiver announced that he will be foregoing his final year of eligibility to declare for this year’s NFL Draft. He shared the news in a social media post.
A Biletnikoff Award winner as a sophomore in 2018, Jeudy was a First-Team All-SEC selection for 2019 by the conference coaches. In three seasons, Jeudy caught 159 passes for 2,742 yards and 26 touchdowns. The bulk of that production came over the past two seasons (2,478 yards, 24 TD). Jeudy’s 26 career touchdowns rank second in Alabama history behind only Amari Cooper (31).
Jeudy saved the best for last, going out with a bang in the Citrus Bowl. In Alabama’s win over Michigan, Jeudy hauled in 6 receptions for a career-high 204 yards and a touchdown.
Since the end of the 2018 season, Jeudy has been projected as a high first-round selection in the 2020 draft.
