Mizzou's Albert O off to the NFL

For the second time in two days, the Missouri football team is losing a junior to the NFL draft. This one was expected: Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam won’t return for his senior season and will make himself available for the 2020 draft. He announced his plans on Twitter.

He tweeted the following on Monday: “I’m beyond thankful for my experiences at this outstanding University. I’ve learned so much about the game of football and life over these past 4 years. Through trial and triumph these experiences undoubtedly molded me in to the player/man I am today. I am extremely thankful for all my coaches throughout my career so far and their everlasting impact on and off the field.
