Lamar Jackson

There is a lot going on at The University of Louisville but the question everyone is asking is, “Will Lamar declare for the NFL draft or will he return for his senior year?”

It’s funny that everyone seems to have the answer. Everyone knows someone who knows someone who said that they know what he is going to do. Don’t believe anything you hear because nobody really knows, including Lamar.

Lamar said that he wouldn’t even entertain the idea until after the bowl game. While I believe that he and his mom probably didn’t start talking about it till after the bowl game, you would be crazy to believe that he hasn’t spent a few restless nights pondering what he should do by weighing the pros and cons. It’s just human nature.
