Sevyn Banks, an LSU cornerback, has reportedly made plans to head to the NFL.

Wilson Alexander of The Advocate reported that Banks will give up a final season of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.

Banks plans to work out at LSU’s Pro Day. It’ll be the first chance to see him since a dangerous opening kickoff at Auburn where he suffered a spinal cord injury. The former Ohio State starter is trying to reach the NFL after injuries disrupted the last 2 seasons.

Banks transferred to LSU last year after starting his career at Ohio State. He missed the first 3 games as he recovered from an injury, then Banks suffered a bruised spinal cord when he made a tackle on the opening kickoff Oct. 1 against Auburn. He did not play the rest of the season.

Banks was a 4-star recruit and the No. 221 overall player in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He appeared in every game his sophomore year at Ohio State before turning into a starter and at the time projected an early-round draft potential.
