Jake Locker Announces Return to Washington

University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker has decided to not to submit his name from consideration for the 2010 National Football League Draft and will return to the Husky football program for his senior season.

After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year. 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.

Locker's decision comes despite projections that he would likely be a first round pick, possibly the first or second quarterback taken, but makes Washington's prospects for a bowl bid much better next season.
