ATHENS — Georgia offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson announced on his Instagram account he will declare himself eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft.
Wilson joins fellow offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, who also declared himself eligible for the NFL draft earlier on Tuesday.
Thomas stated he will not play in the Sugar Bowl, and Wilson has confirmed that he will also skip the Jan. 1 game against Baylor.
Wilson, a 6-foot-7, 340-pound redshirt sophomore, was a second-team All-SEC pick as voted on by the Associated Press.
The Brooklyn, N.Y., product started 10 of the 11 games he played in after suffering an ankle injury in the season-opening 30-6 win at Vanderbilt.
Wilson played every offensive snap in wins against Kentucky, Florida and Texas A&M, helping to pave the way for 1,200-yard rusher D’Andre Swift from his right tackle position.
Wilson started every game his redshirt freshman season, earning FWAA Freshman All-American honors. He was named the Bulldogs’ co-winner of the Offensive Most Improved Player award at UGA’s postseason awards gala.
Underclassmen have until Jan. 20 to declare themselves eligible for the NFL draft. A list of underclassmen approved for entry will be sent to NFL teams on Jan. 24.
The NFL draft evaluation process includes the East-West Shrine Game (select players Jan. 18, St. Petersburg, Fla.) and the Senior Bowl (select players, Jan. 25, Mobile, Ala.).
The NFL combine takes place Feb. 24-March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The University of Georgia will also hold a “Pro Day” combine in March, typically the week leading up to the start of spring drills.
