I have to admit this isn’t what I expected to hear from Leonard Floyd.
As of now, Floyd said he has not made a decision on staying in college or turning pro.
“I’m going to definitely talk to my circle, which is my people I trust the most,” Floyd said. “I plan on talking to them after the (Georgia) Tech game. Probably the following week, we’ll start making my decision.”
The situation isn’t simple, according to Floyd. His mind doesn’t revolve around an impending paycheck and suiting up every Sunday next fall. Plus, a championship hunt with Georgia still weighs heavy on his mind. His words bear no semblance of someone anxious to start a professional career, at least, not yet.
“Some people do it for more than just going to the league,” Floyd said.
Admirable to hear a guy be thoughtful about his present as much as his future with talk like that. But I still think it would be a major upset if Floyd suited up for the red and black in 2016.
Not that I’d complain about it, if it happened.
