Christian Izien Jr. announced his intent to enter the NFL Draft following his 5th season of college football with the Scarlet Knights. He declared for the draft Monday on Twitter.

Izien was a bright spot in the Rutgers secondary, especially for the past couple of years.

Izien totaled 40 starts across 4 of his 5 years in Piscataway. He totaled 303 tackles, 19 passes defenses, 15.5 tackles for loss and 4 interceptions in a Scarlet Knights uniform.

He is forgoing his final season of eligibility granted by the Covid-19 pandemic to enter the draft. He’s likely to make an NFL GM very happy in a couple of  months
