KJ Stroud Signs as UDFA with the New York Jets
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Former Bethune-Cookman receiver KJ Stroud has officially signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets of the National Football League.
Stroud, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior wide receiver from Brooklyn, N.Y., becomes the first B-CU player to ink a free agency agreement with an NFL team following this year’s NFL Draft. He arrived to the Wildcats program in 2011 after transferring from Rutgers where he spent the 2009 and 2010 campaigns. In the process, he joins former B-CU players Terry Williams – now an assistant coach with the defensive backs for the Wildcats – and Charlie White as former B-CU players to have signed with the New York Jets organization. Williams served as a second round choice for the Jets in the 1988 draft, while White was selected in the 1977 draft.
In 2012, Stroud saw action in all 12 games for the MEAC champion Wildcats, hauling in a team second-best and career-high 26 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown. His 24.4 yards per game average was also second-best on the Wildcats squad this past season.
Stroud matched a career-best mark of four catches on three occasions in 2012, including a career-high 60 yards on four receptions and his lone touchdown of the season against Norfolk State. He also pulled in four receptions against Alabama State in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge and an additional four at Savannah State.
He concluded his B-CU career with 33 catches for 450 yards and two touchdowns.
