Junior linebacker Kenneth Murray will forgo his senior season and enter April's NFL Draft.

Murray started all 42 games in his career for the Sooners, tallying 325 tackles, 36.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. The Missouri City, Texas, native was a First-Team All Big 12 selection as a junior, and he was the backbone for the Sooners' defensive turnaround in 2019.

In Murray's absence, the Sooners will have junior DaShaun White and senior Caleb Kelly stepping up as the team's top linebackers going into 2020. 

Murray is the second Sooner to declare for the NFL Draft, with junior wide receiver CeeDee Lamb announcing his decision to leave Oklahoma last week.
