We felt like it was coming. But even though the evening's news doesn't come as a great surprise, it's still going to strike you in a certain kind of way.​


I mean, just look at the amazing P.S. at the bottom of the message.


But let's not bury the lede: superstar UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen has taken to Twitter and Instagram to announce that he will forgo his final year of college eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

​​Yeah, picking up NFL checks and tossing darts on Sundays is nice, but a degree from an elite institution like UCLA? You can scarcely put a price on that.


All told, Rosen finishes a three-year career as a Bruin with 9,301 passing yards, 59 touchdowns, and a handsome 139.9 passer rating.


The player is sure to be one of the top picks in the upcoming draft, if not No. 1 overall, though exactly where he ends up (or even consents to play) will be up for some serious debate. ​He has openly said that he'd rather go back to school for another year ​than play for the Cleveland Browns, who own the top pick in the draft and certainly need a quarterback.


Will the chance at NFL millions and the honor of potentially going No. 1 overall suddenly wash away ​Rosen's reservations? That remains to be seen. But for now, one thing is official: the Bruins' signal-caller is going to be playing on Sundays.


​Let the sweepstakes begin.
