Texas Tech outside linebacker Tyree Wilson said he will pass on his final college season to enter the 2023 NFL Draft.
He is a projected first-round draft pick and is done for the season with a foot injury sustained in the Nov. 12 win against Kansas.
“I fully intended to finish this season with my brothers on the field, but unfortunately, I broke a bone in my foot and despite my best efforts to work through it, multiple doctors have advised me to get it fixed immediately,” Wilson posted to Twitter Sunday night. “Although I have to stay off my foot for the next couple of months, I will be 100% healthy and prepared for the NFL Draft workouts where I plan to continue to prove that I’m the best defensive player in this upcoming draft.”

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound Wilson is listed as the No. 2 defensive prospect in the draft by ESPN analysts.
Wilson transferred to Texas Tech from Texas A&M before the 2020 season. He ends his Red Raiders career with 109 tackles (29 for loss), 15.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 32 games.
In 10 games this season, he had 61 tackles (14 for loss) and seven sacks.
