UCF Knights wide receiver Dredrick Snelson announced Sunday on Twitter that he is foregoing his senior year and entering the 2019 NFL Draft.

It probably should not be a surprise, considering Snelson’s Twitter activity the day after the Knights’ loss in the Fiesta Bowl:

Snelson is expected to follow in a long line of great wide receivers to come out of UCF, notable Tre’Quan Smith, who came out last year, along with Brandon Marshall, Mike Sims-Walker, all the way back to Shawn Jefferson.

A graduate of Flanagan High School in Miami, Snelson was UCF’s second-leading receiver each of the last two seasons, behind Tre’Quan Smith in 2017 and Gabe Davis in 2018.

Here are his stats:
