So long, D’Onta. Longhorn Nation wishes you the best.

Sitting next to his twin brother, Armanti, Texas Longhorns running back D’Onta Foreman declared for the 2017 NFL Draft on Wednesday, foregoing his final season of eligibility on the 40 Acres.

After carrying the ball 323 times in 2016 and with a reported draft grade between the first and second rounds, it was an easy decision for the junior, who said that former head coach Charlie Strong remaining in Austin probably wouldn’t have changed his decision.

In the aftermath of Foreman’s official decision to leave, he posted a farewell message:

Thank you for everything, Mr. Foreman, and best of luck at the next level.
