Arkansas star receiver Treylon Burks announced Wednesday that he will skip the Outback Bowl against Penn State and is declaring for the NFL draft.

Burks, a first-team All-SEC pick, caught 66 passes for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. He is just the fourth Arkansas player to top 1,000 in a season.

“I have had many restless nights praying and talking with my family regarding this decision,” Burks said in his announcement on Twitter. “With that being said I have decided to opt out of the bowl game and forego my senior season and declare for the NFL draft.”

Burks is expected to be among the top five or six receivers selected in the 2022 draft.

Arkansas (8-4) and Penn State (7-5) play on Jan. 1.
