Clemson defensive end Myles Murphy will skip the Orange Bowl this month and enter the NFL draft, he told ESPN on Tuesday.

Murphy is ranked No. 10 overall among 2023 draft prospects and No. 1 at his position by ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.

A 6-foot-5, 275-pound junior, Murphy collected 18.5 sacks and 36 tackles for loss in three seasons with the Tigers.

“It really came fast,” Murphy told ESPN. “Three years ago today, I was getting ready to head to Clemson. It was a really fast transition. Now there’s a transition to the next level and next chapter of my life. Every big decision that I make, I go back to the family and make it a family and team decision. We all agreed on and thought it was the best decision.”

Murphy earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors in 2022 and helped Clemson (11-2) win the league title.

The Tigers will play No. 6 Tennessee (10-2) on Dec. 30 in the Orange Bowl in Miami Gardens, Fla.
