    UCLA to start rFR Hundley at QB

    http://m.espn.go.com/ncf/story?storyId=8257685

    By Friday, he had apparently seen enough and a day after his comments about public safety at UCLA created a national stir, he named Hundley as the starter via press release on an off day during training camp, six days before Mora's self-declared Aug. 16 deadline to name a starter.

    "Brett has consistently demonstrated the qualities we value in a starting quarterback and is an outstanding leader who commands the respect of his teammates," Mora said in a statement. "He has shown excellent decision-making skills, and his accuracy and timing continue to improve with each practice. In addition, he has shown the mobility and creativity needed when a play breaks down."

    Hundley, a redshirt freshman who was among the top high school quarterbacks in the nation in 2010. He is 6-foot-3, 223 pounds and is a dual threat with his arm and his legs. He said Friday that he wasn't worrying about the quarterback competition as much as improving as a player.
    "Just because somebody's a talented guy or he's right for a lot of people
    doesn't mean he's right for us here at Nebraska." -Bo Pelini, 2/3/10

    As FLAS knows this kid came out of the state of Arizona highly, highly regarded....only one point from being a 5-star on rivals....arguably the best dual-threat QB of the 2011 class....with that being said he will be learning under fire and I expect our D to do well against him even with it being a home game for UCLA...

    Was ranked the #72 player in the nation in that class....

    Would not be surprised to see him as a four year starter at UCLA...if his offense line holds up and keeps him from getting beat up to much....
    Notre Dame only had one Rudy but Nebraska gets a new crop of Rudys every season

    Agreed. He may turn out to be a great one, but I like getting him in his second start.

    Bo's D should keep them in check; however, a freshman QB has torched them before.

    UCLA's O-line is not very good....their D line is their strength....so Hundley is not going to get much help....

    Doesn't matter who the QB is, it is likely to be hard fought victory for the Huskers!

    Yea, that Braxton Miller kid was doing just fine against NU until the football god's smote him.

    This Hundley kid could be trouble, but I have a feeling defense will do just fine.

    I think the D-line did better against mobile QB's with the containment strategy (VT 2009).

    I don't understand why no one is worried about this kid.

    Mobile QBs are Bo's kryptonite.
