Pete Thamel of the New York Times is reporting that USC starting quarterback Matt Barkley will announce today that he will return for his senior season.

Barkley is scheduled to hold a press conference at 4 p.m. to formally announce his decision on whether he will enter the NFL Draft. It was believed that if the 21-year-old quarterback left school he would have been a top-10 pick in the draft. Entering the 2013 NFL Draft instead would make him the early favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick.

This year Barkley led the USC Trojans to a 10-2 record, including a 7-2 mark  in the Pac-12. As a result of NCAA sanctions, the Trojans were not eligible for postseason play, which means despite defeating UCLA 50-0 in their final game of the season, they were forced to watch as the Bruins represented the Pac-12 South in the conference title game.

This season Barkley threw for 3,528 yards and 39 touchdowns while only tossing seven interceptions.
