Top ACC WR opting out of 2020 season


by -

One of the top targets in the ACC is opting out of the 2020 season.

Sage Surratt, of Clemson's 2020 ACC opening opponent Wake Forest on Sept. 12, announced the decision on Wednesday.

Pro Football Focus rated him with the third-highest grade for an ACC wide receiver returning.

"My love for Deacon Nation makes this decision very difficult," Surratt said on social media. "After careful consideration, I will forgo the upcoming season due to the many uncertainties and risks associated with COVID-19. My family and I have decided it is best for me to focus on training for the 2021 NFL draft."

He was on the Biletnikoff and Maxwell award watch lists in the preseason.

Surratt tallied 66 catches for 1,001 yards and 11 scores in just nine games last year before suffering a shoulder injury.
