A Heisman finalist, Haskins’ decision doesn’t come as a huge shock despite some hints that he might entertain a return. He comes off a sophomore season that saw him throw 50 touchdown passes to just eight interceptions, good for 4,831 yards. He figures to be a first-round pick in April’s draft.
This decision has been a foregone conclusion since Justin Fields transferred to Ohio State. He likely wouldn’t have gone to the Buckeyes to try to play immediately unless he had some assurance that Haskins was about to vacate his starting spot.
