Locker is coming back

Washington fans just got a great Christmas gift.

The school just announced that quarterback Jake Locker will return for his senior season, despite projections that he'd be selected in the top-half of the first round of this spring's NFL draft.

“After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year,” Locker said in a statement. “I am very excited about this team’s opportunities and potential for the upcoming season and I am looking forward to being a part of it.”
