Michael Oher, the subject of Michael Lewis'  JAN 13 2008

Michael Oher, the subject of Michael Lewis' book, The Blind Side, is undecided about declaring for the NFL draft after his junior year.

Oher was named to the all-Southeastern Conference first team after the season and is considered one of the top offensive linemen prospects in the country. He has already shown the promise scouts predicted when he was a homeless 16-year-old who didn't know how to play football.

Meanwhile, the movie adaptation of The Blind Side is proceeding...word on the street is that Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and George Clooney are interested in starring.

Update: Oher declared for the draft. (thx, michael)

Update: On second thought, Oher reconsidered and is remaining at Ole Miss for another year. (thx, michael)
