Jameis WInston: ‘I’ll play for two more years, that’s the plan’
Jameis Winston won the Heisman Trophy and the BCS National Championship as a member of the Florida State Seminoles. As soon as he had achieved this, rumors started to circulate that Winston would be made the top quarterback prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft.
He’s achieved everything he’s needed to achieve as a college player, so why would he stay in school? Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said earlier this week that Winston could play for the team for two more years before entering the draft in 2016.
Many thought Fisher’s comments were just wishful thinking, just a coach wanting to retain his top player for as long as possible. However, Winston himself has said that Fisher’s comments were what he was planning on doing during an interview by the Associated Press on Thursday.
“Obviously I’m a big baseball person, so that’s an accurate statement because I plan on playing baseball next season anyway,” said Winston, who is expected to be the Florida State’s closer this season.
Since he plans to play baseball next year, it will be difficult or him to prepare for the NFL Draft at the same time. But Winston says he’s not looking that far head.
“Obviously, I’m not even worried about the draft and stuff like that,” Winston said Thursday. “I’m worried about winning championships here at Florida State.”
