Malachi Dupre will enter the NFL Draft.
The junior wide receiver declared Friday afternoon in a video message posted on twitter announcing he’ll forgo his senior season.
He is the fourth and likely final LSU underclassmen to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, joining running back Leonard Fournette, safety Jamal Adams and defensive end Davon Godchaux.
Dupre ended his junior season with his best game as a Tiger, setting career-highs with seven catches and 139 yards in LSU’s BWW Citrus Bowl rout of Louisville. He hauled in 41 passes for 593 yards and three touchdowns in his junior season.
LSU will return a wide receiver core led by D.J. Chark, who announced last week that he’s return for a senior season. Russell Gage and Dee Anderson also saw consistent playing time last season.
Here’s Dupre’s video announcement:
