UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley has decided to stay in school. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hundley will return for his redshirt junior season with the Bruins instead of entering the NFL draft.

Hundley's decision comes only days after UCLA head coach Jim Mora announced that he was sticking with the Bruins instead of pursuing the head coaching position at Texas.

The UCLA quarterback has started every game for the Bruins since the beginning of the 2012 season. This fall he completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,071 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine picks. The 6-foot-3, 222-pound Arizona native also pitched in 748 yards and 11 scores on the ground. For his UCLA career Hundley has thrown for 6,816 yards, 53 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
