One of the best prospects in the 2023 NFL draft has just become one of the best prospects in the 2024 NFL draft.

Penn State left tackle Olu Fashanu says he has decided to remain in college and not enter the NFL draft this year.

“Penn State is an awesome place to go to school,” Fashanu told ESPN. “And I can get my education for free.”

Of course, Fashanu could also enter the NFL and get upwards of $30 million guaranteed on his rookie contract, at which point he could afford all the education he wanted. But Fashanu is only 19 years old and seems happy in college, and now that college football players can sign endorsement deals, he may make decent money next year at Penn State.

Presumably Fashanu will enter the NFL in 2024, and if he plays as well next season as he did this season, he’ll be a very high draft pick.

  1. Only team in the top 10 that have a good future is the Eagles! I’d choose Physics over getting Drafted by the Texans or Bears as well

  2. Choosing to get his education and dedication to the team over money. Stay healthy, you’re going places. We Are.

  3. I hope he has injury insurance. College is pretty fun but football is dangerous and any injury he gets while having fun could cost him a pretty penny.

  4. Still beats playing for the bears or texans. Or worse the browns and the circus that will be.
