I'd also argue that if you are the 3rd string QB at any college, you're chances of making it in the NFL are pretty slim. Maybe he should take advantage of the educational opportunity that is presented to him that he has earned with his athletic abilities?
A lot of really good players were 3rd string at some point in college, especially at schools like Ohio State. Jones was what, a Top 30 QB coming out of high school? A guy like that gets a look in a system where the NFL has to develop the talent.
I am all for furthering ones education. But why force adults to if they don't want to?
