2013 BCS National Championship: Alabama OT D.J. Fluker still undecided

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Alabama OT D.J. Fluker is unsure about whether or not he'll leave early to enter the NFL Draft, and seems more concerned about matching up with Notre Dame DT Louis Nix on Monday.

Alabama Crimson Tide offensive tackle D.J. Fluker is still undecided about his future, says ESPN's Joe Schad.

Fluker, a 6'6, 335-pound junior who is about to play in his second-consecutive BCS National Championship Game, doesn't seem to be in any hurry to make a decision, if this quote to Schad is any indication:

"I do have one season left if I want it."

Instead, Fluker appears to be more concerned with his team's meeting with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Monday and, perhaps more specifically, his match-up with Irish defensive tackle Louis Nix:

"(He's) the most dangerous nose guard I've seen. He reminds me a lot of Warren Sapp."

Fluker is rated as the 49th-best overall player in this year's draft class, according to ESPN's rankings. He is rated as average to above-average in most categories, but is thought of as being below-average in pass protection.

Fluker and the Crimson Tide are slated for an 8 p.m. ET kickoff against Nix and the Fighting Irish on Monday night at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla.
