LSU star wide receiver Justin Jefferson will enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

"We just had a perfect year," Jefferson said, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel. "We won the national championship and set records. We had a lot of awards and did it with our team. I feel like it was the best way to go."

The 6-foot-3, 192-pound wideout enjoyed a standout junior season in 2019, tying for the most catches in college football with 111 while amassing the third-most yards (1,540) and second-most touchdowns (18) in the nation.

Jefferson was also one of the most important pieces in the Tigers' championship run, posting 14 catches for 227 yards and four touchdowns in the semifinal against Oklahoma before adding 106 receiving yards on nine receptions in the title game versus Clemson.

LSU also lost its starting center Wednesday, as Lloyd Cushenberry III announced he's entering the 2020 draft.
