Iowa All-American defensive back Amani Hooker has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Saturday afternoon, Hooker made his announcement via Twitter, saying he’ll leave Iowa to pursue his dream to play professional football. He joins fellow Hawkeye Noah Fant as an early entrant into the draft.

“This past season has been amazing for the team and myself personally and is one that I will cherish forever,” Hooker said. “With that being said, after serious discussion with my friends, family, and lots [of] prayer, I have decided to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.”

Hooker was a star in Iowa’s secondary this season, registering 65 tackles and four interceptions. He also recorded 3.5 tackles for loss and seven pass break-ups as the Hawkeyes finished 9-4.

Following a huge season, Hooker was an All-B1G selection and a second-team All-American as selected by the Associated Press. He was also named the conference’s Defensive Back of the Year.

In three seasons with the Hawkeyes, Hooker totaled 125 tackles and six interceptions. He tallied six tackles in the Outback Bowl against Mississippi State, his final college game.
