Oklahoma State redshirt junior wide receiver Tyron Johnson announced Monday afternoon on Twitter that he will forego his senior season to enter the 2019 NFL draft.

Monday was the final day underclassmen could declare for the draft.

Johnson, a former five-star recruit, transferred to OSU from LSU in 2016. In his final season with the Cowboys, he made 53 receptions for 845 yards and seven touchdowns. The New Orleans product was named offensive MVP of the Liberty Bowl after racking up 141 yards and two touchdowns on seven catches in OSU’s victory over Missouri on New Year’s Eve.

Johnson made 80 catches for 1,288 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in his career with the Cowboys.

The 2019 NFL draft will be April 25-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.

OSU’s group of returning receivers for next season includes Biletnikoff Award finalist Tylan Wallace, Dillon Stoner and Landon Wolf.
