Washington State quarterback Luke Falk could be leaving college a year early to enter the NFL Draft this upcoming season. Falk, who is currently expected to be drafted in the third round, is graded with an average arm.
Sources suspect he will be leaving early to take advantage of a relatively weak quarterback class which could help push in up into earlier and maximize the amount of dollars in his pockets.

Falk is yet to confirm the report himself, though he didn’t deny it either.
Instead, he said he didn’t know where the reports were coming from and that he found the report annoying. He did say his focus is on this week and seemed as if he was going to reassure the Cougar faithful, but instead glossed over the fact that he would be sticking around for next season.

What Falk did was add a little more fuel to the fire.
Most of what he said is droney quarterback press room talk. Say as much as you can without saying much of anything. This story won’t go away anytime soon and speculation will likely grow as the season progress, forcing Falk to make a statement one way or another.
