The Oklahoma State football team's wide receiver corps won't include Tyron Johnson next season.

Johnson, a redshirt junior wide receiver from New Orleans, announced Monday  in a tweet that he'll forgo his senior season at OSU and declare for the NFL Draft.

Johnson had 845 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the 2018 season. He transferred from LSU to OSU during fall camp in 2015. He wasn't eligible to play during the 2016 season because of NCAA transfer rules, but he made his Cowboy debut as a redshirt sophomore in 2017.

OSU's group of returning receivers includes Biletnikoff Award finalist Tylan Wallace, Dillon Stoner and Landon Wolf.

LC Greenwood, C.J. Moore, Jonathan Shepherd, Patrick McKaufman and Braydon Johnson might have chances to make an impact as receivers next season. Langston Anderson, a four-star wide receiver according to 247Sports rankings, will also bolster the Cowboys' receiving corps without Johnson. Anderson is part of the Cowboys' 2019 signing class.
