UCLA coach Jim Mora starts QB Brett Hundley’s Heisman hype

We’re seven months away from fall camp, but that’s not stopping UCLA coach Jim Mora from talking about who should win college football’s most coveted award.

Sunday evening, Mora posted a picture of the Heisman Trophy on Twitter and added the hashtag #Hundley4Heisman.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, who flirted with leaving early for the NFL, decided to return for the 2014 season, which makes UCLA one of the top challengers for the Pac-12 title.

Hundley is no stranger to Heisman hype. He’s received some mentions in each of the past couple years, but the early season buzz hasn’t amounted to anything because of struggles against teams such as Oregon and Stanford down the stretch.

Still, if Hundley can sharpen his decision-making, continue playing at a high level and finally lead his team to wins over the leagues top teams, there’s no reason why he couldn’t find himself in New York next December.
