Defensive end M.J. Anderson’s first season with Iowa State looks to be his last.
The talented junior transfer from Minnesota announced on social media that he will forgo his final season of eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft.
Anderson — who was second on the team in tackles for loss with 9.5 this season — offered thanks to his teammates, coaches and fans in an Instagram post before announcing his intention to go pro.
“After prayers and conversations with my family I have decided that it is time for me to take all I’ve learned on to the next level,” Anderson wrote.
The 6-3, 275-pound St. Louis native also ranked second on the team in sacks with 3.5.
