Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville junior quarterback who’s a favourite with pay per head sportsbooks, said that he is “undecided” whether he should return for his senior year, and will decide what to do after his team’s bowl game.
“I’ve been hearing all these stories that I’ve made a decision — I haven’t made a decision,” Bridgewater said on Monday. “I will talk to my mom and the coaches before making my decision. I’m not leaning either way.”
Pay per head sportsbooks learned that ESPN’s Todd McShay has Bridgewater as the No. 1-rated quarterback prospect, and the No. 8 overall player.
Bridgewater said that won’t lean either way, but admitted that he’s closely paying attention to the other quarterbacks that have made the decision to either declare early or stay in school.
Price per head services found out that the player will decide on his future “hopefully three-to-four days after” Louisville’s Russell Athletic Bowl on Dec. 28 against Miami in Orlando, Fla., when he feels “comfortable” with his decision.
Bridgewater will not set a specific deadline.
“Whenever I feel comfortable after discussing it with my mom, my family and my coaches,” he said.
Pay per head sportsbooks were very happy to learn that on Thursday, Bridgewater will graduate with a degree in sports administration. The player is the first member of his family to graduate from college.
“It’s not a hard decision at all,” said Bridgewater, who last month turned 21. “I know I control my future and my own destiny.”
The player said that he did not yet talk about his future with offensive coordinator Shawn Watson or Louisville coach Charlie Strong.
He said that the main reason for returning for his senior year would be “playing in a new conference against better talent and being able to play another year with guys I’ve had great relationships with at Louisville.”
Pay per head sportsbooks know that the Cardinals move next season to the ACC after spending Bridgewater’s last three years in the Big East and American Athletic Conference.

And this was what Bridgewater had to say about his main reason for declaring early for the NFL:
“I can finally say I reached my ultimate goal and it would change my mom’s life (financially),” he said. “I can make an impact on my environment, where I grew up in Miami, showing there’s no restrictions what you can reach. That someone from the same neighborhood can make it out.”
