Mizzou's Maclin to announce Friday his decision whether to go pro

COLUMBIA | Two-time All-American Jeremy Maclin will reveal Friday whether he will enter his name in the NFL Draft or return for his junior season at Missouri.

One thought. Do you schedule an 11 a.m. news conference — as Missouri has Friday — to say the best all-purpose player in college football is staying?

Toward the end of the regular season, Maclin said he would probably stay unless projected as a first-round draft choice. Most mock drafts have him projected as a first-round draft choice.

That said, following Missouri’s Alamo Bowl victory, Maclin also said: “There’s a lot more that I want to achieve at this university.”

Stay tuned.
