Texas A&M wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon announced Sunday that he is opting out of the 2020 season and entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Ausbon has been weighing the decision in recent weeks and reportedly hadn’t always been practicing with the Aggies.

“This was not an easy decision at all!” Ausbon wrote in his announcement on Twitter. “Sounds cliche, but when I decided to come back for my fourth year, I would’ve never imagined not playing this season with the guys I love and call brothers. These are bonds that I will hold for a lifetime and I mean that wholeheartedly.”

Ausbon caught 147 passes for 1,818 yards and eight touchdowns in 35 games with the Aggies. He set career highs last year as a junior when he had 66 catches for 872 yards and five scores.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Ausbon said he will complete work on his bachelor’s degree during the fall semester.

Texas A&M begins its season on Sept. 26 against visiting Vanderbilt.
