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.”
