Two star players for the Alabama Crimson Tide have announced that they will enter into the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jerry Jeudy announced on Saturday afternoon on Twitter that he will not return for his senior season of football at Alabama and will instead enter into the 2020 NFL Draft.

In the tweet, he said his “journey at the University of Alabama has been an amazing experience.” He thanked his family, coaches, football brothers, staff, and fans for making his time at Alabama great.

“Being able to play the sport I love alongside some of the greatest people in the game has been a blessing for me,” said Jeudy.

Jedrick Wills has also chosen to forgo his senior season of Alabama football, in an announcement made on Twitter on Saturday.

Wills thanked God and the University of Alabama for “an unbelievable experience” the last three years of his life. He also thanked his family, friends, fans, Coach Saban, Brent Key, Kyle Flood, and Coach Cochran for believing in him and helping him become the player he is today.

“As a kid from Lexington, Kentucky, it has been a dream of mine since the first time I strapped up my pads to play in the National Football League,” said Wills.

Jeudy and Wills are the first two Alabama players to announce they are entering the NFL draft.

On Monday, Alabama star linebacker Dylan Moses announced on his Instagram that he will return to play for Alabama for his senior season.

Alabama’s star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa announced on Wednesday that he will make his decision about the NFL draft on January 6.
