Report: UCLA QB Brett Hundley to return to school for his junior season

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley's NFL Draft prospects have been rising in recent weeks, but according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, that won't be enough to lure him away from school.

Hundley redshirted his freshman year in 2011 so he has two years of eligibility remaining, meaning he'll be entering his junior year of eligibility.

Hundley took a step back statistically in his sophomore season, but his potential has intrigued many NFL scouts and that's had his name skyrocketing up draft boards.

He threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, rushing for 161 more and two additional scores in the Sun Bowl against Virginia Tech.
