It looks like Jameis Winston may stick around in Tallahassee longer than many have assumed.
Winston told the Associated Press Thursday that he might play two more years of college football, reiterating what Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday. The redshirt freshman is coming off a Heisman Trophy and National Championship winning season and is preparing for his second season as a member of the Florida State baseball season.
“Obviously I’m a big baseball person, so that’s an accurate statement because I plan on playing baseball next season anyway,” Winston said, referring to Fisher’s statement that he thinks Winston will play for two more seasons.
Winston would be eligible for the 2015 NFL Draft and is expected to be a high first-round pick, so many expect Winston to jump to the professional ranks as soon as he is eligible. Despite this, Winston said he is not thinking that far ahead.
“Obviously, I’m not even worried about the draft and stuff like that,” Winston said. “I’m worried about winning championships here at Florida State.”
