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.
