The mass exodus for the NFL continues unabated, with Oklahoma State the latest to lose a player to early entry into the draft.
As all of the cool kids are doing these days, Josh Stewart announced via a social media — Instagram in this case — that he is foregoing his remaining eligibility with the Cowboys and will be a part of the NFL draft pool. In addition to a picture headlined with the word “Legacy” and stating that “a new chapter begins,” the wide receiver also wrote a note of thanks explaining his decision.
“First I wanna thank god for this opportunity and for all the cowboy fans that’s been the most loyal and true fans I’ve ever been around! I’ve been so blessed and I’m thankful for you guys! I would like to just let you all know that I’ve decided to declare and enter the NFL draft! One of the most hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my life. But im ready for this life and I hope all my friends and Cowboy family continue to follow me throughout this journey I’m gonna be preparing for! Thanks for everything Cowboy Nation I will rep Pokes until my time on this earth is up!”
This season, Stewart led the Cowboys in receptions (60) and was second in receiving yards (703). Stewart also finished fourth in the country in punt returns, averaging a robust 16.7 yards per attempt. He scored touchdowns on two of his 22 returns.
