As if there was any doubt, Andrew Luck says he’s ready to leave college after Stanford plays in the Fiesta Bowl.
Luck said on ESPN that he considers himself “absolutely” prepared to leave college and enter the NFL draft. Luck does have one remaining season of NCAA eligibility and could play at Stanford in 2012 if he wanted, but this has been widely regarded as his final college season.
“I think I’m going to hopefully play professional football if a team will have me,” Luck said, via NFL.com.
I think it’s probably safe to say that an NFL team will have him, and that team will probably be the Colts, who at 0-12 have a two-game lead over the Vikings and Rams in the Suck for Luck Sweepstakes, with only four weeks left in the season.
Luck said he hasn’t been planning any type of formal announcement about his plans to enter the NFL draft because he thought it was obvious that this is his last season in college.
“I thought it was pretty formal or understood when I came back for my final year, so I have no clue if I’ll make a formal announcement or not,” Luck said.
That may have been the only announcement he needs.
