Two more enter draft

By | January 11, 2020

Two more enter draft … A couple more juniors announced today that they would be entering the 2020 draft including Illinois DE/OLB Oluwole Betiku and TE Dalton Keene of Virginia Tech. Betiku was once a big-time recruit at Southern Cal but barely played for the Trojans before transferring to Illinois. At Illinois, though, Betiku had a breakout year this past fall when he racked up 9 sacks. He’s a 6-3, 250-pound edge rusher with projected 4.65 speed, who is currently the 11th rated OLB on the GBN positional ranking and figures to start to get some consideration in the latter part of the second day of the upcoming draft. Meanwhile, Keene is a 6-4, 240-pounder who had 21 receptions, including 5 for scores, this past season; he is a third-day prospect for the 2020 draft. With the addition of these two players, the number of underclassmen who have declared for the upcoming draft is up to 96.
