Kentucky all-purpose star Lynn Bowden’s college carer is indeed nearing an end as Monday he announced he would be declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft but would play in the Belk Bowl vs. Virginia Tech in a video he posted on twitter.

Bowden was a four-star prospect out of Youngstown, Ohio becoming one of the highest-rated Kentucky recruits of all-time. After struggling as a freshman at both wide receiver and as a return man as a freshman in 2017 Bowden broke out as a sophomore in 2018.

The speedster racked in 745 receiving yards on 67 catches with five going for touchdowns. In addition, he added two punt return touchdowns and averaged 29.2 yards per punt return.

Bowden opened his junior season at wide receiver where he finished with a team-leading 348 receiving yards but moved to quarterback after injuries to both Terry Wilson and Sawyer Smith.

Under-center, Bowden thrived, leading Kentucky to a 5-2 record in seven starts rushing for an incredible 1,235 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has also added 330 passing yards and two touchdown passes.

Before Bowden heads to the NFL, he will look to win his second bowl game as a member of the Wildcats when Kentucky battles Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Dec. 31st.
