Rumors began circulating over the past week that Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler would be making some sort of announcement about his future with the Sun Devils.
As the days went on, the feeling was that the impending news was related to Osweiler declaring for the NFL draft, rather than a possible transfer as a result of the hiring of Todd Graham.
According to DevilsDigest.com and Craig Morgan, who covers the Sun Devils beat, Osweiler will announce his decision to leave a year early and declare for the draft. A press conference for that decision is reportedly set for Friday.
Graham confirmed to CFT that he received the news of Osweiler’s move via text message, and added that while the medium by which Osweiler’s message was delivered was insensitive, the junior quarterback more than made up for it by ending it with “God bless.”
(Okay, not really, people)
The junior quarterback — did we mention he’s 6’8″? — threw for over 4,000 yards and 26 touchdowns as part of a disappointing 6-7 season for ASU, which proved to be the last for coach Dennis Erickson.
