Oklahoma’s star center Creed Humphrey announced on Twitter on Thursday he will be leaving the Sooners and enter the 2021 NFL Draft.
The news from Humphrey comes one day after the Oklahoma Sooners smoked the Florida Gators 55-20 in the Cotton Bowl.
Humphrey said in part, “Playing at the University of Oklahoma these past four years has been everything I hope for and more. Winning four straight Big 12 championships, a Joe Moore Award, and being the Big 12 offensive lineman of the year twice. I am incredibly grateful toe Coach Stoops, Coach Riley, and Coach Bedenbaugh to take a chance on a kid born in Shawnee, Oklahoma and give him a scholarship. I have learned invaluable lessons not only about football but life in general.
After talking with my coaches and family, I have decided that it is time for me to begin the next chapter of my life. I will be declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft.”
As Humphrey noted, he has been one of the most accomplished offensive lineman in Oklahoma history, which is certainly saying something.
While Humphrey is humble in his statement, he was still one of the top prospects at his position coming out of high school. In the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports, Humphrey was the No. 3 center in the nation and No. 5 player in the state of Oklahoma.
The 86th NFL draft is scheduled to be held April 29-May 1, 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio.
