On Monday night, Oregon Ducks junior quarterback Marcus Mariota stated that he wasn’t sure about whether he would come back to Eugene, Oregon or not. Well, a few days later, he has decided that he will leave school and forgo his senior season.
Mariota, who won the 2014 Heisman Trophy ceremony, will announce his decision later today.
The 21-year-old has accomplished almost everything in the collegiate ranks, except for a national championship. He lost in the national championship game on Monday night.
He’s thrown for 10,801 yards in 41 career games at Oregon. He also thrown 105 touchdowns to 14 interceptions, which is an amazing stat.
He ended his college career with an interception.
Mariota also had 2,260 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns. He also caught two receptions for 28 yards and two touchdowns.
There has been speculation already that he’ll go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the No. 1 overall pick. However, time will tell if that’s where he’ll go when it’s all said and done at the 2015 NFL Draft.
He’ll compete for the top pick with former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who also declared for the 2015 NFL Draft. Mariota’s Ducks destroyed Winston and the Seminoles on New Year’s Day in the Rose Bowl, where Mariota was named the Rose Bowl Offensive MVP.
