Artavis Scott is now the second Clemson wide receiver to declare for the NFL Draft today.
This afternoon, Clemson star Mike Williams announced that he is making the jump to the next level. He’ll be joined by another Tigers receiver, Artavis Scott. The 5-foot-10 Florida native announced his decision via Twitter moments ago.
Scott has been a productive player for the Tigers during each of his three collegiate seasons. This year, he caught 76 passes for 614 yards and five touchdowns, which were actually career lows for him. His usage was likely eaten into by the return of Williams from injury, and the continued development of guys like Deon Cain and Hunter Renfrow. As a freshman in 2014, Scott had a career high 965 yards and eight touchdowns. As a sophomore, with Williams out, Scott caught 93 passes.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson and running back Wayne Gallman are also off to the NFL. At the offensive skill positions, next year might be a bit of a rebuild for Clemson, but the way Dabo Swinney and his staff have recruited as of late, the Tigers should still be very talented and dangerous.
