Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III reportedly will enter the NFL Draft, sources told ESPN on Sunday.
Griffin, a junior from Copperas Cove who led the Bears to a 67-56 victory over Washington in the Alamo Bowl on Thursday, has until Jan. 15 to declare.
The Heisman Trophy winner is projected as an early first-round pick and could be the second quarterback chosen behind Andrew Luck of Stanford.
Griffin's father, Robert Griffin II, told ESPN that his son already is preparing for the NFL even though he has not made it official.
Never miss a local story.
"I met with my son [Friday] and his schedule is pretty much he will attend the Sugar Bowl here in New Orleans, then next weekend he will meet with five agents and select the right agent to represent him and plan a good pre-draft process," Griffin II said.
"After that he will sit down with three of his coaches at Baylor on Wednesday or Thursday [Jan. 11 or 12] and make it official."
A Baylor spokesperson released a text statement to ESPN later Sunday indicating that Griffin is still undecided.
"Robert Griffin III -- the son, the player -- has NOT made a decision regarding eligibility. He will seek input from coaches later this month, then make his decision."
Griffin graduated in December 2010 with a degree in political science and is 12 hours away from his master's degree.
Including the bowl victory, Griffin passed for 4,293 yards and 37 touchdowns and rushed for 699 yards and 10 scores.
He finished with a 189.5 pass efficiency rating, which broke the FBS single-season record previously held by Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan.
