Indiana’s Whop Philyor declares for draft; Ty Fryfogle stays
Indiana wide receiver Whop Philyor announced Saturday he’s entering the NFL draft, the day after fellow WR Ty Fryfogle said he’s returning to the Hoosiers for his final season.
Fryfogle, the 2020 Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year, led Indiana with 721 yards and seven touchdowns, while Philyor had the most catches with 54. Philyor gained 495 yards and added three scores.
The Hoosiers finished the season with a 6-2 (6-1 Big Ten) mark. Their only losses came against Ohio State and Ole Miss in the Outback Bowl.
Both announced their decisions on Twitter.
“My time here has changed me and taught me many things,” Philyor wrote. After long and thought-out discussions with family and close friends, I decided that it is time for me to move to the next level in life and pursue my dream of playing in the NFL.”
Fryfogle said in his Twitter post that he has unfinished business at Indiana.
“After long talks with my mom, family, friends, and coaches I have decided to return for my last year of eligibility at Indiana University,” he wrote.
“My work here at Indiana University is not yet finished. There are many great things in store for this football team in 2021. The future is very bright and I am excited to be a part of it.”
