Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota isn't sure whether he will declare for the NFL draft in 2015 at the end of his junior year, the Ducks star told Chase Goodbread of NFL.com.

Mariota said he knows the opportunity is there, but at the same time the Heisman candidate knows college is fun, so he's unsure whether he will make the jump before his senior season at Oregon, according to Goodbread:

"We'll see, I'm not too sure. The opportunity to leave obviously is there, but at the same time, college is fun and I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet."

The 20-year-old purchased a $5 million insurance policy this spring that protects him from losing potential earned money due to an injury. He opted to pass on declaring for this year's draft and will return to Oregon in the fall as a fourth-year junior, which means he has two years of college eligibility remaining and could enter the NFL draft in 2015 or '16. 

Mariota won Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year in 2012 while also going on to being named Pac-12 All-Conference First Team in 2012 and '13 and was MVP for the Fiesta Bowl and Alamo Bowl in 2013.
