Current Washington State Cougars’ quarterback Luke Falk is one of the best signal callers in the collegiate version of football right now and could potentially help a team at the next level become a lot more interesting. However, Falk denies that he will enter the 2017 NFL Draft come next spring.
His denial comes on the same day that Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, citing an unnamed source, reported that Falk will forgo his senior season and join the NFL ranks.
“I don’t know where the sources are coming from at all,” Falk said, according to The Seattle Times. “If anybody knows me, I focus on one day at a time and focus on helping my team win. If I had to make a decision right now, I’d say I’m definitely staying. It’s just kinda frustrating that someone said [you said] something you didn’t say. I really don’t like dishonest people.”
Miller projected Falk to be a third-round selection, but he seems pretty adamant that he isn’t going to leave school.
Falk leads the Pac-12 in completions, completion percentage and passing yards this season. He has 2,926 passing yards and 24 touchdowns against just five interceptions. The up-and-comer has completed 72.6 percent of his passes and has also averaged 7.4 yards per attempt this season. His 72.6 completion is also best in the entire nation, as a matter of fact, and his 365.8 passing yards per game average is the second-most in the country behind only Texas Tech junior quarterback and known stat sheet stuffer Patrick Mahomet, II.
