The sound of a million jaws dropping could be heard dropping across Texas tonight:
Texas junior quarterback Vince Young will enter the NFL draft and forgo his final year of college.
Young made the announcement official this afternoon at a press conference in Austin. A close family friend told the Chronicle of the decision earlier today.
“I wanna thank God for being in the position I’m in today … I was ready to move on to the next level … Hard work has paid off a whole lot,” Young said this afternoon while thanking his family, his pastor and Texas coach Mack Brown.
