Louisville wide receiver Jaylen Smith is bypassing the 2018 NFL Draft and returning for his senior season.

Smith announced his decision on his Twitter account:

This is a major boost to the Louisville offense’s continuity as quarterback Lamar Jackson departs for the NFL.

Smith was Louisville’s No. 1 wide receiver last season. Smith was rewarded with first-team All-ACC honors after being honorable mention in 2016.

Smith amassed 60 receptions for 980 yards and seven touchdowns.

Smith tallied those stats in only 10 games, as he missed three games due to wrist injury early in the season.
