Stanford Cardinals QB Kevin Hogan is returning to school for his 5th year option instead of declaring for the NFL draft.
Hogan announced his decision via Twitter on Thursday, the final day for early-entry candidates to declare for the draft.
”Some of the guys I talked to said to rely on your gut and don’t make a decision you might regret down the road,” Hogan said in an article posted on the Stanford athletics website. ”This is something I can’t regret. Coming back to Stanford really was a win-win situation for me. I’m happy, and I want to get back to work and get better.”
In 37 games played for the Cardinals, Hogan has 48 TDs and 21 INTs, as well as over 6,500 passing yards, 913 rushing yards and 9 rushing TDs. Hogan led the Cardinals to back-to-back PAC-12 title wins in 2012 and 2013 as well as two Rose Bowl appearances, and was the MVP of the Foster Farms Bowl in their 45-21 win over Maryland. He is is 24-8 as the starter.
”A lot of my decision wasn’t necessarily related to the football program,” he said. ”It was the school in general. I feel I can further dedicate myself academically and possibly get my master’s degree next year. There’s no better locker room in the country and I wasn’t ready to leave these guys.”
