I dont necessarily think that it was a bad decision though. Although he's a solid college player, his stock wasn't going to get any higher, and he was only getting older. He's already gotten his degree, and he comes from a poorer background, so i think he jumped because he wanted the money for his family, and there wasn't much left for him to do in college, since he's graduated and won the Rose Bowl.
