Javian Hawkins Opts Out For Rest Of Season, Will Prepare For NFL Draft

Chris Humphrey

Louisville running back Javian Hawkins career as a Louisville Cardinal has come to an end.

The redshirt sophomore announced earlier this morning that he will opt out for the remainder of the 2020 season and will prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

Hawkins did not play in Saturday’s loss at Virginia, but we weren’t given a specific reason for his absence.

The Florida native has been one of the few bright spots for the Cards in 2020. Hawkins has totaled 822 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in just seven games. Hawkins had a big breakout season in 2019 with 1,525 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.

Hawkins ends his Louisville career as the school’s 10th leading rusher with 2,355 yards. He is third on the single season rushing list with 1,525 yards in 2019 and fifth in career yards per carry at 5.9.

Best of luck, Javian!
