Mississippi State’s record-setting quarterback confirmed Wednesday what was widely-expected. And to Bulldog fans, even more hoped-for. Dak Prescott will return for his senior season. He made the announcement one day before deadline for early entry in the 2015 National Football League draft.
The opening minutes of today's press conference are shown here as file by Steve Robertson.
Prescott declined to follow a couple of fellow Bulldog juniors out the door a year early. Running back Josh Robinson and linebacker Benardrick McKinney are already entered in the draft pool and have signed representatives, ending their college careers. They are preparing now for the NFL’s pre-draft combine to be held February 20-23. The draft is April 30-May 2 in Chicago.
A more in-depth report of Prescott’s announcement is forthcoming.
