The move by Hundley comes just days after head coach Jim Mora denied interest in a position at Texas while declaring his intention to remain at UCLA.
Hundley will next season as a third-year starter, having started every game for the Bruins since 2012. This year he completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,071 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine picks. Hundley added 748 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground as well.
UCLA QB Brett Hundley, viewed as a potential top-10 pick, plans to return to school for senior season, per sources. Announcement this week.

Some have questioned Hundley’s ability to throw against top level competition after threw just four touchdowns and five interceptions in losses against Stanford, Oregon and Arizona State this season.
As is the case with many quarterbacks the draft stock of Hundley was all over the place.
With Braxton Miller’s annoucement that he was returning to Ohio State next season it seems we are only awaiting a decision by UCF quarterback Blake Bortles.
