Record-setting Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray announced via Twitter that he will be returning for his senior season. All Bulldogs fans can sleep easier tonight.
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 #GoDawgs

Murray received a second- or third-round grade from NFL evaluators, and fans would have understood if he left early, because there’s not much more for him to accomplish numbers-wise with the Bulldogs – except that elusive SEC Championship. Murray is the only SEC quarterback in history to throw for three 3,000-yard seasons. He threw for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns this season.
Georgia’s offense will be electric once again, as Tavarres King is the only impact player on offense leaving. But the Bulldogs do need some help defensively, as they will lose likely eight impact players.
