Lamar Jackson introduced on Twitter that he’ll depart Louisville to enter the NFL Draft, one season after turning into the youngest Heisman Trophy winner.
The Cardinals junior quarterback tweeted Friday that he talked along with his household earlier than asserting the choice, which was confirmed by Louisville soccer spokesman Rocco Gasparro.
Jackson’s choice was considerably anticipated after compiling statistics higher in some areas than his Heisman-winning numbers as a sophomore. He completed third on this 12 months’s Heisman voting.
The 6-foot-Three, 212-pound Jackson thanked Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino, teammates and followers within the tweet. He writes “It has been nothing in need of an honor to be a member of #CardsNation and to play for this college.”
