Ngata announces his future plans

After four seasons at Clemson, Ngata took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce he is declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft.

“I want to thank Coach Swinney for giving me the opportunity to play football at Clemson University,” Ngata said.

 “I also can’t thank Coach Grisham, Coach Scott, the support staff, my teammates,

and the Clemson fans enough for helping me along this journey the past four years.

It is with great excitement and gratitude that I announce I am declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft. Go Tigers!”

The former four-star recruit had his best statistical season in 2022,

 finishing with 41 receptions for 526 yards and two touchdowns. Battling injuries in 2020 and 2021,

 Ngata ends his collegiate career with 88 receptions for 1,287 yards and six touchdowns.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound pass-catcher joins Jordan McFadden, Bryan Bresee, Trenton Simpson,

 Myles Murphy, K.J. Henry, Davis Allen and B.T. Potter as Tigers who will hope to hear their names called in the NFL Draft in April
