Now that Robert Griffin has officially taken the world over by winning the Heisman Trophy, most people want to know what his next move is going to be. Griffin hasn't really committed one way or the other when it comes to whether or not he'll return to Baylor for another season or enter the NFL draft, but it looks like his parents are taking every precaution.
According to a report by Yahoo's Jason Cole, Griffin's parents have been interviewing prospective agents, and there's a strong chance that Griffin will declare himself eligible for the NFL draft.
Which, as bad as it would be for Baylor, only makes sense for Griffin. While he was a bit of a cult hero coming into the season amongst die-hard college football fans, he had a meteoric rise in notoriety this season culminating in the Heisman win. He's like the Arcade Fire of college football quarterbacks, except that he gets a meaningful award and not a Grammy.
So with that in mind, if Griffin does want to give the NFL a shot, it's hard to see his stock getting any higher than it is at the moment. He's not likely to be the first quarterback taken in the draft, as that will be Andrew Luck, but he's definitely a first round pick and could be the second quarterback taken.
In fact, according to CBSSports.com's mock drafts, Griffin will go in the top ten to either Miami or Cleveland.
So unless Griffin really just wants to spend another year as a college kid -- and given his personality, that's a distinct possibility -- then odds are that the Alamo Bowl will be the last time he plays in a Baylor uniform.
