Brett Hundley, Jr. (born June 15, 1993) is an American football quarterback for the UCLA Bruins. He is the school's career leader in both total offense and touchdown passes. As a junior in 2014, he was an all-conference player in the Pacific-12.

Early years

Hundley attended Chandler High School in Chandler, Arizona. As a junior, he completed 107 of 170 passes for 1,517 yards with 16 touchdown passes and only two interceptions. As a senior, he completed 139 of 225 passes for 2,348 yards with 20 touchdowns and two interceptions. Hundley's overall record as a starter in high school was 16-8. He was ranked as the second best dual-threat quarterback recruit in his class by[1]

College career

After redshirting in 2011, Hundley was named the UCLA starting quarterback for the 2012 season.[2][3] In his first college game against Rice, Hundley's first play was a 72-yard run for a touchdown that led to a 49–24 victory. In his second start against the No. 16 Nebraska Cornhuskers, Hundley had 305 passing yards and four touchdown passes as UCLA upset the Huskers 36–30 in their home opener. The Bruins advanced to the Pacific-12 Football Championship Game game against Stanford University, but were defeated 27–24. UCLA finished the season with a record of 9-5, and were ranked No. 17 by the Associated Press. Hundley set a UCLA season record with 3,740 yards passing.[4]

in 2013 Hundley led the Bruins to a 10-win season, and they beat their crosstown rivals, USC, in consecutive seasons for the first time in over a decade.[5] His 748 yards rushing were the school's third-most rushing yards in a season by a quarterback.[4] Two NFL teams told Adam Schefter of ESPN that Hundley was potentially the top quarterback of the 2014 NFL Draft if he left school early. However, Hundley elected to return for his junior year at UCLA.[6]

UCLA began 2014 undefeated at 4–0 until the No. 8 Bruins were upset 30–28 by the Utah Utes. In the game, Hundley was sacked a career-high 10 times, renewing concerns over his pocket awareness.[7][8][9] Through 32 career games, Hundley was sacked 107 times, the highest among active Football Bowl Subdivision quarterbacks.[10] Later in the season, he became UCLA's all-time leader in touchdown passes, surpassing Cade McNown's record of 68;[11] McNown's record came in four years as a starter (1995–1998), while Hundley broke the record in just his third season.[4] Hundley also became the school's career leader in total offense, breaking McNown's previous mark of 11,285.[12] He was named to the All-Pac-12 second team.[13]
