UCLA defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa announced over social media that he will enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

“To my family, thank you for raising me to be humble and work hard. Y’all molded me and layed (sic) the groundwork for me to succeed,” Odighizuwa wrote in a graphic that was posted to Twitter by ESPN. “To the Bruin coaching staff, thank you for helping me grow and get closer to my dream. To my many UCLA brothers, I love and thank you all. Thank you for laughing with me, and grinding with me every day. I will never forget the countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears we shed side-by-side.”

Odighizuwa, whose older brother played two seasons for the New York Giants, recorded 30 tackles — including six for loss — and four sacks in seven games this season.
