Recovering from a finger injury, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley figures to play one more game as a Bruin when the team faces Kansas State on January 2 in the Alamo Bowl. But, as expected, he’ll make the leap to the NFL after that. Head coach Jim Mora has confirmed as much, as Ryan Kartje of the Orange County Register details.
“This will be his last game as a UCLA Bruin,” Mora said of Hundley. “I don’t know that he’s announced it yet, but we all know that’s the case. I’d like him to go out with a successful game.”
Hundley, 21, completed 72.1% of his passes in his junior year at UCLA, compiling 2,547 yards and 17 touchdowns in 10 games for the team. He added another 564 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
In a 2015 draft class that’s not packed with a ton of high-end talent at the quarterback position, Hundley ranks behind only Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston, and Connor Cook in ESPN.com’s prospect rankings, placing fourth among signal-callers.
