Florida State safety Myron Rolle will study at Oxford instead of entering this year's NFL draft.

Rolle won a Rhodes scholarship in November and plans to seek a one-year master's degree in medical anthropology, The New York Times reported Monday in an entry on its college football blog.

"I'm very excited to go," Rolle wrote in a text message to the newspaper.

Rolle, projected to be an early round pick, said he plans to enter the 2010 NFL draft.

He's even pretty good lucking. Talk about winning the genetic lottery. Looks, athletic and brilliant. Maybe he should be featured at a sperm bank or something. Jeez.

Wait wait wait, someone like that going to Florida State? Thats gotta be wrong.

Thats great to hear, obviously not a choice based on money. Sounds like a good kid.

That is awesome. I remember hearing his story earlier in the year.

Best of luck to him in all his future endeavours.

He plans on going to Oxford for a 1 year degree, then entering the 2010 draft.
