It’s as official as it gets—Alabama Quarterback AJ McCarron will bring his tattoo and signal calling skills back to Tuscaloosa, foregoing an opportunity to enter the 2013 NFL Draft. He made his announcement via his Twitter account:
There was a lot of speculation that he might go ahead and make the jump, regardless of the outcome of the January 7 BCS Championship game against Notre Dame. However, his decision makes sense. This is actually a pretty rich quarterback class and AJ probably wasn’t a lock for a first round draft pick.
