Clemson is set to lose another wide receiver early to the NFL draft.
Tigers junior Deon Cain is turning pro, a school official confirmed Wednesday morning.
Cain joins fellow receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, who announced over the weekend that he is also entering the 2018 NFL draft.
Cain caught 58 passes for 734 yards and six touchdowns in 2017, his first year as a starter. He caught 38 passes for 724 yards and nine scores in 2016 while playing behind Mike Williams.
Never miss a local story.
Cain was named third-team All-ACC this season and caught six passes for 75 yards in Clemson’s Sugar Bowl loss to Alabama.
The Tampa, Fla. native arrived at Clemson as a consensus top 50 player in the country and transitioned to receiver after playing mostly quarterback in high school.
