UCLA picks Hundley to start at QB

UCLA coach Jim Mora has chosen redshirt freshman Brett Hundley

to be the Bruins’ starting quarterback.

The first-year coach made the announcement in a news release

Friday.

Hundley was competing with Kevin Prince, Richard Brehaut and

Jerry Neuheisel for the starting job. Prince, a senior, has made

the bulk of the starts at quarterback for the Bruins over the last

three seasons.

Former coach Rick Neuheisel recruited Hundley to UCLA out of

Arizona. Hundley was one of the most highly touted quarterbacks in

the country while at Chandler High School.

Mora replaced Neuheisel after the Bruins went 6-7 last

season.
