The senior from Miramar, Florida announced he’ll be skipping the bowl game to prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft.
I have decided to not play in the bowl game this year in order to go prepare for the next chapter in my life, thank you to my coaches nd all of mountaineer nation. Forever grateful— Yodny Cajuste (@YC_RICH4EVER) December 7, 2018
Cajuste is currently projected to be a mid-first to second round pick by some outlets. He played in 31 games over the course of his career in Morgantown, starting 30 of those. Cajuste was named first-team All Big-12 last week.
West Virginia is still waiting on decisions from several other NFL Draft-bound players, including quarterback Will Grier and wide receiver Gary Jennings. After their loss to the Oklahoma Sooners, David Sills V told reporters that he plans to play in the bowl game but there hasn’t been any confirmation after that.
