Clemson cornerback A.J. Terrell has decided to forgo his senior season at Clemson and declared himself eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft. The junior made his decision on Twitter Friday night.
A First-Team All-ACC selection, Terrell played in all 15 games this season for Clemson, while recording 34 tackles. He also had two interceptions in helping a Clemson defense that finished fourth nationally in passing defense, third in scoring defense and sixth in total defense.
Terrell, who played a big role in the Tigers’ return to the national championship game, had six inceptions in his Clemson career, to go along with 20 PBUs.
In all, Terrell played in 44 games and started 30 of them at Clemson. The 6-1, 190-pound defensive back had a pick-six in last year’s national championship game against Alabama, which started the scoring. He also had a career-high eight tackles. Clemson went onto beat Alabama that night and claim the national championship.
Terrell joins linebacker Isaiah Simmons and wide receiver Tee Higgins as draft eligible underclassmen from Clemson who declared themselves eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft. Simmons said prior to the season that the 2019 season would be his last at Clemson, while Higgins announced on Thursday he was entering his name into the draft pool.
