Clemson’s Mike Williams is leaving school early. The star WR, fresh off of a national title, is the latest Tiger with eyes on the NFL.

Clemson will try to defend its national championship next year without several star players from the team that beat Alabama on a last-second touchdown this past Monday night.

Wide receiver Mike Williams is the latest Tiger to announce his future intentions, as he released a statement via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

“Playing for Clemson was an incredible experience,” Williams wrote. “I am grateful for the opportunity and for everyone who has been a part of my journey. As I close this chapter, I am excited and looking forward to starting the next chapter in my life.”

Williams is leaving the Tigers early to pursue his childhood dream of playing on Sundays. The general consensus among NFL draftniks is that he has a great chance of being the first wide receiver off the board in the first round. He’ll have a chance to further impress league personnel when he attends the upcoming NFL Combine.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder had eight catches for 94 yards and a touchdown in Clemson’s first national title victory since 1981. This past season, he had 98 catches for 1,361 yards and 11 scores to give him 177 grabs for 2,727 yards and 21 touchdowns during his career at the ACC school. Of course, his 2015 season was wiped away after he injured his neck in the season opener against Wofford.
