Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks has announced he is opting out of Arkansas’ bowl game to concentrate on the NFL Draft next year.

The first team All-SEC receiver made the announcement via Twitter:

Burks called it “God’s Plan.”

The wide receiver had over 1,100 yards receiving, 11 touchdowns, and averaged 16.7 yards per catch. Burks going to the NFL wasn’t a surprise, but him skipping the bowl game might have come as a surprise to some.

One NFL expert is already comparing Burks to a star NFL wide receiver. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah compared Burks to Tennessee Titans receiver AJ Brown on Twitter:


Burks is expected to go either in the first or second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
