I would think if I'm a white, 6'2"ish, top rated QB and top rated Point Guard, I would take my chances in football.
That's honestly where I see him ending up. I think being a PG on one of the most storied college basketball programs of all-time, under the guidance of a legendary coach, while getting a world class education isn't a bad way to go. It might not lead to a successful NBA career, but its very respectable. Had he gone on to play QB, there's no saying it would've worked out. Plus the chance for injury is always a factor. I'd rather be hitting jumpers in front of the Cameron Crazies than getting creamed by rush linebackers in South Bend, IN. No matter what he goes on to do, he's going to lead a life that most all of us will be envious of, even if we don't see him on TV every week.
