Georgia's Aaron Murray will return for senior season

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray announced on his Twitter feed Sunday evening that he will return to the school for his senior season instead of entering the NFL Draft.

"Blessed to be the QB for the Dawgs, not ready to leave just yet. Time to get back to work & help lead this team to a championship," Murray wrote on his account.

Murray is rated as the fifth-best quarterback among draft-eligible players, according to CBS Sports. He had been projected by CBS as a possible second-round pick in April's draft.

But instead of the NFL, Murray will return to Georgia, and the Bulldogs will likely be one of the early frontrunners for a national championship appearance. Murray threw for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns this season while only throwing 10 interceptions.

Georgia came within eight yards of advancing to the national championship game this season, falling 32-28 in the SEC championship game to Alabama. Instead, Georgia was left out of a BCS bowl game and beat Nebraska, 45-31, in the Capital One Bowl. Murray threw for five touchdowns in the game, including two in a decisive fourth quarter.
