With the Rose Bowl almost here, questions are swirling about Dwayne Haskins' future at Ohio State. Although the superstar quarterback isn't ready to make an official decision yet, he clearly is confident in his abilities.

Haskins broke several records with the Buckeyes, as he threw for 4,580 yards and 47 touchdowns.

There was already a good chance that Haskins would leave Columbus for the 2019 NFL Draft, but those odds increased even further once Justin Herbert announced he'll return to Oregon.

Herbert was considered by many scouts as the top quarterback of this upcoming class. However, the opportunity to play alongside his brother has enticed him to stay for another season with the Ducks.

Now that one of the elite quarterback prospects is officially off the board, the consensus around the country is that Haskins should see a boost in his stock.

When asked if Herbert's decision will affect his own, Haskins said "I'm happy he made that decision for himself, but his decision had nothing to do with me."

Here was the full quote:

If Haskins does enter the draft he'll most likely be selected early in the first round. Every year teams are in desperate need of a franchise quarterback, and he definitely fits that category.

Ohio State will face Washington on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl. It might just be the final collegiate game for Haskins.
