Clemson linebacker Jeremiah Trotter Jr. announced Tuesday that he will skip the team’s upcoming bowl game, forgo his senior season and enter the 2024 NFL Draft.
He announced his decision via social media.
“After long thought and prayer, I am officially announcing that I am taking the next step in a lifelong dream and declaring the the 2024 NFL draft,” he said. “I will always be a Clemson Tiger!”
A finalist for the 2023 Butkus Award given to the nation’s top linebacker, Trotter led Clemson in tackles (87), tackles for loss (14.5) and sacks (5.5) in 12 games this season. He also had two interceptions — including a pick-six in the Tigers’ 31-23 win over Notre Dame on Nov. 4 — and two forced fumbles.
He is the son of four-time Pro Bowl selection Jeremiah Trotter, who played eight of his 11 NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
