ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray says he is returning for his senior season.
Murray announced on his Twitter account Sunday night he won't leave early to enter the NFL draft.
"Blessed to be the QB for the Dawgs, not ready to leave just yet," Murray tweeted.
He said he wanted to return to "help lead this team to a championship."
Murray, a fourth-year junior, already has graduated. He led Georgia to a 12-2 finish that included a loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game and a win over Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl. Murray threw five touchdown passes in the bowl win.
Another top Georgia junior, linebacker Jarvis Jones, has announced he is entering the NFL draft.
