Pac-12: Hundley's return big news for UCLA

The trend of college football players leaving school early to enter the NFL draft has reached a point where it is big news whenever a star athlete chooses to stay for another year.

That's certainly the case with UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, who on Monday announced he will play for the Bruins in 2014 as a fourth-year junior. Hundley also said he intends to leave after the coming season, following the timetable of former Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.

Hundley's return is huge for UCLA. And his decision obviously affects the rest of the Pac-12 South. Any opponent hoping the Bruins would be weakened by his departure will have to find another way to beat UCLA.

The Bruins are losing offensive lineman Xavier Su'a-Filo, from Timpview High School in Provo. Of the Pac-12 athletes who have declared for the draft so far, Su'a-Filo and Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks, Washington running back Bishop Sankey and Colorado receiver Paul Richardson may be the toughest players to replace.

Here's the rest of the list to date: USC safety Dion Bailey, Oregon State defensive lineman Scott Crichton, California linebacker Khairi Fortt, Cal cornerback Cameron Jackson, USC receiver Marquise Lee, Utah tight end Jake Murphy, Cal tight end Richard Rodgers, Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas and USC defensive lineman George Uko.

From a Utah persepctive, the Utes miss Cal and Washington in the 2013-14 rotation, so the personnel losses at the other schools will have the biggest effect on their schedule.
