Dax Raymond Leaving USU Early for NFL Draft

Cache Valley Daily Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018

Matt Wells wasn’t the only Aggie announcing that he was leaving Utah State on Thursday. Standout Junior Tight End Dax Raymond announced on Twitter that he is foregoing his Senior season and is declaring his eligibility for the NFL draft. The biggest reason, he stated, is because of his age.  Having served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and redshirted a year already, Raymond felt like the time is now to declare for the 2019 NFL draft as he is “three years behind the average junior in college.” ... “I am blessed to have received a quality education at Utah State University,” the Provo native wrote in a statement, “and will graduate early this December.” ... “Thank you to all (who) have supported me and Aggie nation,” Raymond wrote. “Your devotion does not go unnoticed. Thank you Aggie brotherhood – battle on! We’ve got one more to get for Aggie nation this year.”
