It was all but certain that CeeDee Lamb would turn down the opportunity to run it back for his senior year, and now that his Oklahoma Sooners have been eliminated from the College Football Playoff, it's time to make it official.
The all-world wide receiver announced via Twitter Sunday that he's forgoing his final year of eligibility in Norman and declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft.
Lamb, a consensus All-American this season, is a potential top-10 pick in April's draft. He has a modest chance to be one of the first skill players off the board, though he faces stern competition at his position from Alabama standout Jerry Jeudy.
The Richmond, Texas native wraps his college career with back-to-back seasons over 1,000 receiving yards and double-digit touchdowns. OU fell to the LSU Tigers Saturday in the CFP semifinal, 63-28.
NFL teams in need of a boost out wide would do well to take a long, hard look at Mr. Cedarian Lamb. It's onward and upward for the Oklahoma playmaker.
