After two weeks of going back and forth on his decision, Devin White is going to the NFL.
The All-American linebacker and Butkus Award winner announced Monday (Jan. 14) he’s foregoing his senior season at LSU to declare for the NFL Draft.
“As a small-town country boy from Springhill, Cullen and Cotton Valley, Louisiana, dreaming of playing in the NFL always seemed so far away,” White said in a video to LSU fans Monday. “However, it was all God’s plan to place the opportunity within arm’s reach.
“I’ve chosen to accept the challenge.”
ESPN’s Todd McShay ranks him as the No. 3 overall prospect in the 2019 Draft, and CBS Sports has White at No. 6. Most mock drafts have him drafted outside of the top-10 due to his position.
