Jalen Hurd Is Confident His Multimillion-Dollar Gamble Will Pay Off at Baylor

Jalen Hurd Is Confident His Multimillion-Dollar Gamble Will Pay Off at Baylor

He's either a selfless teammate who put his body on the line week after week or a loner who abandoned his team.

He's either wise to have walked away from millions in the NFL to reinvent himself as a player and open the door to a longer career in the league or selfish and foolish for deciding to chase an impossible dream.

"Heard it all," Jalen Hurd says, shaking his head in resignation, and there's little doubt that part of him wonders why he agreed to this interview in the first place.

He has kept a low profile by choice, from his last day as anointed savior of the Tennessee program to his now-welcomed obscurity at a Baylor program left for deada€”for a couple more months, anyway.

Because when football begins in September, when Jalen Hurd 2.0 is reintroduced to college football and the one-time, can't-miss, 6'4", 240-pound prototype NFL tailback re-emerges as a sleek and sinewy 220-pound wide receiver, those same weighty expectations he left in the rearview mirror in Knoxville will find him again.

"He's going to play a long time in the NFLa€”as a wide receiver," says Baylor head coach Matt Rhule, who in January turned down the Indianapolis Colts job to stay in the college game. "He will be an elite wide receiver."
