Griffin got into college at age 17. He got his undergraduate degree in political science with a 3.6 GPA and a masters in communication.

Sounds like he may have a future in poliics!

Indeed he may. I continue to be how impressed at how well-spoken Robert Griffin III is. His speech after winning the Heisman was the King's English -- free of jive, slang or sub-standard eubonic nonsense. I can't help but contrast Griffin with fellow Texan and Heisman runner-up, Vince Young, who punctuates every few words with "man" even when being interviewed by a woman. For all I know, Young may be a decent guy but his mush-mouthed manner of speaking and street slang does not reflect well on him.

Bu the way, the latest Heisman winner (and another Texan), Johnny Manziel, initially seemed a bit nervous when delivering the acceptance speech. After getting past the butterflies, he was very impressive and showed maturity far beyond his years (having just turned 20).

That future may happen sooner than later. Scrambling QBs have a very short shelf life.
