Yep, just like Mike Williams and Manuel Wright did, correct?

I've done a complete 180 on this. For the longest time I was sure he'd stay. Now I'm convinced that he's a strong possibility to declare, especially if he has a good showing at the Rose Bowl.
What happened to your Texas kids NEVER leave early argument?
Like I said, I've done a complete 180 on this. I was basing my earlier opinion on the fact that:
a) kids from Texas under Mack Brown really don't leave early
b) he gave an interview late in the season (don't remember which game) where he said he was coming back next season
After the Big XII title game, he gave a couple of interviews and both of them asked him about coming out early. In both his responses he was shaky at best. Couple that with the fact that the new collective bargaining agreement will more than likely have a rookie slotting system much like the NBA that would go into effect in 2007, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if a lot of people jumped ship this year, including Vince Young.
