SEATTLE —

Jake Locker says he will not make himself available for the NFL draft and will return to Washington for his senior season.

Locker released a statement through the university on Monday. Locker says he gave the idea of leaving after his junior season careful thought.

But he says he is excited about the team's potential for next season.

Locker is coming off a junior season during which he threw for 2,800 yards in his first year under the watch of coach Steve Sarkisian. Draft pundits have said Locker would be a high first-round pick if he left after his junior season, but Locker wants one more shot at reaching a bowl game after the Huskies went 5-7 this year.
