Fresh off of a fantastic performance, rallying his second-ranked Florida State Seminoles over the fifth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish 31-27, it looks like Jameis Winston had decided to enter the NFL Draft.

Although Jameis Winston and his camp continue to say they haven’t committed a crime, he does plan on declaring for the draft and according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the investigations have played a big part.

"These same sources said a few weeks back that Winston was torn as to his future, pointing to how much he loved playing football and baseball in college, and at that time they suggested that only if the team was still undefeated deep into the season and Winston having a superb season would he leave. Now, however, in the face of the multiple investigations into him, and what has become an adversarial relationship with school officials (excluding coach Jimbo Fisher and key members of the athletic department) it is virtually certain Winston is declaring no matter what happens in the second half of the season."

It’s hard to believe Jameis Winston would be torn in the first place, considering he looks like a first round pick. However, he does genuinely love playing baseball so it is somewhat believable.

Jameis Winston and the Seminoles will enjoy a bye week before heading to Louisville to take on the Cardinals on Thursday, October 30.
