It's been a good week for UCLA. There was the Sun Bowl win over Virginia Tech, followed by Jim Mora remaining in Westwood instead of heading to Texas, and now the news that Brett Hundley will be staying in school at least one more season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning that Hundley will not enter this year's NFL Draft. Although Hundley was only a sophomore in eligibility this season, since he redshirted the 2011 season he still met the NFL requirements of being at least three years removed from high school.

Schefter says Hundley had been projected to be a top ten pick had he entered the draft.

Instead he'll return to UCLA and try to help the Bruins win a Pac-12 title and get to the Rose Bowl, or possibly the playoffs -- still feels weird to type and read that -- next season.

Hundley combined for 3,826 yards this season, with 36 touchdowns. One of those touchdowns came as a receiver as well, so the only thing Hundley didn't do for the Bruins this season was play on the offensive line.
