Jennings native Travis Etienne declares for the NFL draft.

The Clemson star announced his intentions on Instagram, foregoing the NCAA's extra year of eligibility granted to seniors this year because of the coronavirus.

Etienne is the most decorated running back in ACC history, and this year he broke Ted Brown's ACC career rushing record. With nearly 5,000 career yards, Etienne leaves Clemson as the FBS's 28th all-time leading rusher.
