Baylor officials have scheduled a 3 p.m. news conference today in Waco, with quarterback Robert Griffin III and football coach Art Briles to discuss the Heisman Trophy winner’s future plans. Griffin, a fourth-year junior, is expected to announce plans to enter the 2012 NFL Draft, based on multiple media reports citing information received from family sources.
Griffin, who holds Baylor career records for passing yards (10,366) and touchdown passes (78), is projected as a first-round pick by NFL officials, possibly a Top 5 selection. Fans can watch the announcement online. It will be streamed live at www.BaylorBears.com.
