RG3 Set to Join the Draft (Again)

Chris Mortensen reported a couple weeks ago that Baylor's Robert Griffin III would enter the draft. Today, Mort once again reported that RG3 is about to make things official:

No surprise: Baylor QB Robert Griffin III is informing Baylor coach Art Briles today he is turning pro, per family source.

Griffin is expected to be the second quarterback taken in April's draft behind Andrew Luck, and is thought to be a prime target for the Redskins. He is coming off a 24 for 33, 295 yard, 1 TD performance in a win over Washington in the Valero Alamo Bowl. This also likely ends Griffin's quest of competing in the 2012 Olympic games.

The deadline for prospects to officially declare is this Sunday.
