Check out the third part of my interview with Brett Hundley, Scout.com’s No. 5-rated quarterback in the country, and a UCLA verbal commit.
Any thoughts on the rumors about Norm Chow?
Hundley: “It would be pretty awkward for him to leave. But I really do trust in Coach Neuheisel and any decision he makes will be the right one. Norm Chow is a great coach, I look forward to learning under him, but change is always happening. Any moves Coach Neuheisel makes, I’m committed to UCLA.”
We’ve heard anecdotes that you were like a one-man recruiting service for UCLA last weekend?
Hundley: “That’s a huge thing. Once I committed, I knew all along I could talk to recruits. But I still make sure I’m not trying to force them. Just like me making my decision, I want them to know it’s really what they think is right for them. But I do try to connect with some of the recruits. I’m trying to build a major, major recruiting class.”
Do you think you can help?
“Yeah, I really think all this helps. You try to build a big program, a good class so you have talent around you. That’s something everyone needs.”
Is that something that comes naturally, or did you realize there that you could have an impact? Some other recruits have called you the savior…
Hundley: “This is just my personality. As a quarterback you have to show leadership in all phases of life. It’s good to know that’s the impression of me. I’m glad I portray something like that. I’m glad I have those skills. My father brought me up to be a real good young man. But you can’t ever cocky about that. It’s just me.”
