Ole Miss suffers another NFL Draft opt-out ahead of LSU game
Shortly after Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore announced that he would not play in the Rebels’ final game of the regular season against LSU—and their bowl game, if the team so chooses to participate in one—to prepare for the NFL Draft, a 2nd key member of the offense has chosen to do the same.
In a Twitter post on Thursday evening, tight end Kenny Yeboah revealed that he would not play against the Tigers and instead begin preparations for the draft as well.
“My time at Ole Miss was one that I will never forget,” Yeboah said in a statement. “I am so blessed to have such a great fan base during my one year at Ole Miss. This by far was my favorite year of college.”
A transfer from Temple, Yeboah made 27 catches for 524 yards and 6 touchdowns in his lone season with the Rebels. At Temple, he combined for 32 catches, 387 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2018 and 2019, including 5 in his redshirt junior year of 2019. He then decided to enter the transfer portal, finding a home in Oxford with 1st-year head coach Lane Kiffin.
