Miami RB DeeJay Dallas declares for 2020 NFL Draft

Not surprisingly, Miami has officially lost DeeJay Dallas to the draft.

Utilizing his personal Twitter account, Dallas confirmed Friday evening that he is headed into the 2020 NFL Draft pool. Dallas said he came to his decision “after having a long talk with God” and that he “decided to rely on my faith and take the next step to following my dream.”

“From day one, I made it my priority to embody the characteristics of a true Hurricane: integrity, respect, excellence, and passion,” the running back stated. “My time here at Miami has been special and my heart will forever bleed Orange and Green.”

Dallas led the Hurricanes with a career-high 693 yards and eight rushing touchdowns this season. He also accounted for another 140 yards and two more touchdowns on 14 receptions coming out of the backfield.

The four-star 2017 signee finishes his collegiate career with 1,528 yards and 17 touchdowns. He averaged 5.7 yards on his 266 carries.

Dallas’ announcement came one day after Miami’s season ended with an embarrassing bowl loss. It also came the same day The U fired its offensive coordinator, hours after its first-year head coach was given a public vote of confidence.
