Murray has decided to forgo the 2013 NFL Draft to return for his senior season, after breaking the news on his personal Twitter account.

"Blessed to be the QB for the Dawgs, not ready to leave just yet. Time to get back to work & help lead this team to a championship."

Georgia literally came yards short of beating Alabama in the SEC Championship game, which would have allowed the Bulldogs to play in the BCS title game. But instead, they fell to the Capital One Bowl – a non-BCS bowl – against the Big Ten’s No. 2 team (Nebraska).

Murray threw for 3,893 yards (school record), 36 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this year. His 95 career touchdowns are also most in Georgia history.

According to CBS Sports, Murray was projected to be taken in the second round of April’s draft. He is currently the No. 1 quarterback for the class of 2014.
