Mallett to announce intentions today

According to a press release issued by Arkansas this morning, quarterback Ryan Mallett will hold a press conference at 2:30 this afternoon.

What exactly that press conference will entail — whether he’s leaving school early or staying — is not known.

In a posting on his Twitter account, ESPN.com‘s Joe Schad tweets that a source close to the situation “believes” that Mallett will announce he will be returning to the Razorbacks for another season.

Mallett is a redshirt sophomore who was outstanding in his first season as Arkansas’ starter, throwing for 3,627 yards and 30 touchdowns in leading the Razorbacks to an 8-5 record and a Liberty Bowl win over East Carolina.

    He needs another year but could go #1 at QB because he has biggest upside at the position in the draft.

    You have got to be impressed with this kid’s talent. He’s essentially Joe Flacco with perhaps even a little better arm. He does need some more work on some of the throws, his touch isn’t always the best, but if he can find those throws, he’ll certainly be in the running for not only the #1 QB slot in next year’s draft but #1 overall, and no I didn’t forget about Jake Locker, Mallett just has that much upside.

    He’ll be returning for another year. The kid has the potential, but still needs some fine tuning. Heisman watch, perhaps?

    Mallett is staying.

    If he comes out now, it will be at least 3 years before he will win in the NFL. If he stays another year, he could win his first year as he has the potential to be that good. Thirteen games as a college QB is not enough experience to be even passable in the NFL. Reading defenses will be the test for him and he will fail measureably without more college experience.

    Mallett versus Locker… going to be pretty interesting.
