Quinshon Judkins broke the hearts of Ole Miss fans by hopping in the portal on Thursday.

Shortly after the news broke about his departure, he left a farewell note to fans. Judkins led Ole Miss in rushing in the last 2 seasons, compiling 2,725 yards rushing and 34 touchdowns during that time.

Here’s what Judkins said to fans as he puts Oxford in the rearview:

“Dear Rebel Nation,

“I have loved my time here at Ole Miss and am grateful for the opportunity to grow as a football player and person within this program.

“To the fans, I want to say thank you for welcoming me and my family and for all of the love and support,” said Judkins. “To my brothers, who will forever be a part of my family, I am forever thankful for the relationships we’ve built while I’ve been here.

“To Coach Kiffin, Coach Smith, and the entire coaching staff, thank you all for believing in me and developing me into a better football player. After long talks with my family and hard prayers, I have decided to enter the transfer portal. The decision to enter the transfer portal was not made lightly, but I believe it is the best decision for my presonal and athletic growth.

“I hope you understand and respect my choice. Love you all and wish nothing but success.”

Ole Miss finished with 11 wins for the 1st in program history this year. The Rebels ended the season with a 38-25 win over Penn State in the Peach Bowl.
