UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley says his decision to return for his junior season rather than pursuing an NFL career was harder than he had imagined.
“To be honest, I really thought this decision was going to be so easy,” the redshirt sophomore told The Jim Rome Show. “But it was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve made in my lifetime.”
The possible NFL first round draft pick said what they’ve been doing in Westwood the past two years was too special to leave.
“Realizing the opportunity what we have here at UCLA,” said Hundley. “We’ve built something very special here and just to be able to take part in that and to continue that process of building UCLA back up to national prominence is truly a blessing and something that I wasn’t ready to leave yet.”
Rome asked Hundley, if Coach Mora had left UCLA would the quarterback have followed.
“Probably. Most likely, yes,” said the quarterback.
But with both quarterback and coach returning in 2014, Hundley predicted big things for the program.
“All the stars are aligned to do something really special at UCLA and really turn the tides and get everybody’s attention,” said Hundley.
