If you’ve been waiting on the news of Jameis Winston’s official answer on whether he will enter the 2015 NFL Draft, there is an answer.
Jameis Winston made an official statement just today that he plans on putting his name in the 2015 NFL Draft. Although it is not quite surprising, I still think it is an amazing thing for him.
According to ESPN, he released this statement, as well as his father confirming the news:
Winston confirmed the decision in a statement issued late Wednesday morning by The Legacy Agency, which will represent him. Winston’s father, Antonor Winston, had told ESPN earlier Wednesday that his son had decided to enter the draft after initially planning to announce the decision after Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T.
“After weighing this decision with my family and friends, I have decided to declare for the 2015 NFL Draft and forgo my remaining eligibility at Florida State,” Winston said in the statement. “I reached this very difficult decision after careful consideration and long thought, realizing how difficult it would be to say goodbye to my family at Florida State. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to wear the garnet and gold and have greatly enjoyed my time as a Seminole, both as an athlete and a student in the classroom.”
