With a record of 18-2 as a starter, Mauck set a school record with 28 touchdown passes last season. Turning 25 next month and a pre-med major, Mauck was also considering entering dental school.
Tomorrow defensive end Marquis Hill has a press conference scheduled to announce his intentions. Sources have told us Hill was struggling with the final choice through this weekend.
TFY Analysis: This is no shock as we posted last evening a source has tipped us off Mauck notified Nick Saban this weekend he was leaving for the draft. We understand why he did it (being 25-years old) and going into 2002 we were high on Mauck after he backed up Rohan Davey the prior season, but injury plagued him during that year. Mauck needs a lot of work but does not have much time and as a result could end up being drafted very late. One side note; we heard Nick Saban is not all that unhappy about the decision as he's looking for an excuse to put super freshman JaMarcus Russell behind center.
