Oweh declares for 2021 NFL Draft

Penn State football

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State redshirt sophomore defensive end Jayson Oweh decided to forgo his fourth season and declared for the 2021 NFL Draft.

“All my life I’ve taken the hidden route,” Oweh said. “The route that isn’t always the easiest. The route of many unknowns. The path not taken. I thank God for the discernment in my heart that always believes I can and I will. I’ve always had faith in God and his plan. Every move I’ve made has been directed by him. God continues to bless me with such great opportunities, and I can only use such blessing to help me make this decision.

“It has been an honor to be a part of the Penn State family and don the Blue and White. The care Penn State has provided me was exceptional and has been truly expressed. I remember going to my first game and instantly knowing this was where I was supposed to be. Through the years, this journey has shown me everything I am and how much I have matured in Happy Valley. I take pride in being part of such an amazing school and I will always represent Penn State to the best of my abilities. The Penn State tradition has so much motivation, pushing any player above and beyond their own years of experience. It is that culture which makes me the man I am today. I am thankful.

“After careful and precise consideration with my family and those closest to me, I have officially decided to declare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

“In the words of Coach Franklin, ‘In reality, every day you have a choice. If you want to be successful, there really is only one choice.’ Coach, I will carry your teachings and culture forever.”
