Fresh off a national championship victory, the wide receiver, who many pundits have rated as the top pass-catcher in this year's crop of draft-eligible prospects, announced his intentions to enter the 2018 NFL Draft on Wednesday.
Ridley overcame tremendous obstacles on his way to stardom, as NFL.com's Chase Goodbread chronicled in a Back 2 Campus feature this fall.
Ridley, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound wideout (school measurements) who can play inside or outside, was rated No. 25 on CFB 24/7's list of the top 25 players in college football following the conclusion of the regular season.
