Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III is headed to the NFL.
Griffin made it official Wednesday, announcing that he is
bypassing his senior season at Baylor to enter the NFL draft after
a record-breaking college career.
His announcement comes a month and a day after he became the
first Baylor player to win college football's highest individual
Griffin arrived at Baylor along with coach Art Briles before the
2008 season. Briles was at Griffin's side Wednesday.
Griffin set or tied 54 school records while playing 41 games at
Baylor over the past four seasons. The fourth-year junior had
another season of eligibility remaining because he got a medical
redshirt after he tore the ACL in his right knee in the third game
of the 2009 season.
