The Oklahoma Sooners will be losing a key member of their backfield for next season as senior running back Rhamondre Stevenson declared for the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

The 6-foot running back had the opportunity to stay with the Sooners for one more season due to the NCAA’s eligibility rules, but decided to go pro. The former junior college standout landed in Norman after playing at Cerritos College in California.

This season with the Sooners Stevenson posted career-highs across the board with 665 rushing yards on 101 carries and seven touchdowns. He also recorded 18 receptions for 211 yards.

In the Sooners’ Cotton Bowl victory over the Florida Gators, Stevenson racked up a career-high 186 rushing yards on 16 carries and a touchdown. Overall the Las Vegas native from Centennial High School had three games this season where he ran for at least 100 rushing yards. Stevenson will likely hear his name called on Day 2 or Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.
