The 6-foot, 196-pound junior made the announcement on his Twitter account Tuesday.

Williams’ combination of size and speed is expected to make him a high draft pick despite an underperforming junior season that was affected by injuries.

Williams said on Twitter, “I will be taking my talent to the NFL, I wanna thank the NoleNation for some of the best 3 years of my life, the memories will never fade!!”
