Thought it was widely expected....Travis Etienne has made it official. He will head to the NFL draft.
Travis Etienne was a e star recruit out of Jennings, LA. He committed to Clemson in 2017.Etienne had an immediate impact for the Tigers — rushing for 4,038 yards and 56 touchdowns through his first three years with the program.
After his junior year, Etienne shocked everyone declaring he would return to Clemson for his senior campaign in 2020. This season, the fourth-year star added 914 yards and 16 all-purpose TDs to his already-impressive career resume.
Technically, Etienne could’ve stayed for one more year with this season’s COVID-19 eligibility rules — but it’s clearly time this elite talent graces the NFL game.
As potentially the No. 1 running back in this year’s draft, analysts have Etienne going somewhere in the early-to-mid first round.
