Former Texas RB Keaontay Ingram declares for the 2022 NFL draft

·1 min read

Former Texas Longhorn and USC Trojan running back Keaontay Ingram officially announced that he will be declaring for the 2022 NFL draft.

The former four-star recruit out of Carthage, Texas began his college career as a Longhorn where he had three relatively successful seasons. After the emergence of star running back Bijan Robinson, and poorly timed fumbles in a couple games that lost some trust in the coaching staff, Ingram decided to transfer and take his talents to USC.

His time as a Trojan only lasted one season. Ingram announced via Twitter on Thursday that he will be declaring for the NFL draft, and forgoing his extra season of eligibility that he had available due to the pandemic.

While he made the official announcement on Thursday, Ingram was included as a part of one of the rosters of the NFLPA Bowl earlier in the month.

Ingram finished his college career with 495 rushing attempts for 2,722 and 16 touchdowns. He also added 89 career catches for 669 yards and six touchdowns.
