UCLA beats Washington for QB Hundley

UCLA may have landed the ideal quarterback for running its new pistol offense.

The Bruins beat out Washington for ESPN 150 QB Brett Hundley, who committed to the Bruins Monday.

Hundley is a 6-foot-3, 210-pound dual-threat QB. As a junior, he completed 107 of 170 attempts (62.9 percent) for 1,517 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,208 yards with 12 scores and was named Arizona's Gatorade Player of the Year.

Hundley told ESPN's Greg Biggins that a recent visit to UCLA's campus won him over.

"That's where I really got that special feeling. I always liked the campus a lot but I had a chance to bond with the players on the team as well as the coaches and UCLA just felt like the right fit for me."

Both UCLA and Washington suffered disappointing losses on the road this past weekend. This should salve the Bruins wounds a bit.
