Oklahoma redshirt junior kicker Gabe Brkic has declared for the 2022 NFL Draft via Twitter on Thursday.

Brkic was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award this season, given to the nation's top kicker. He finished the season 20-of-26 on field-goal attempts with a nation-high-tying five makes of over 50 yards or more.

The Chardon, Ohio native was an All-Big 12 Second Team selection by league's coaches this season and declares for the draft following the Sooners 47-32 win over Oregon on Wednesday night in the Alamo Bowl. Brkic finished 2-of-2 on field-goal attempts and 5-of-6 on PAT's in the win.

Should Brkic be drafted, he'd be OU's second kicker to be drafted since 2018, joining former fifth round pick Austin Seibert.
