While a number of underclassmen in college football are announcing their intentions to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft before the Jan. 15 deadline, the USC Trojans learned that they will be getting a key member of their defense back for his final year of eligibility.

Trojans junior linebacker Hayes Pullard took to social media to announce that he would be making a return for his senior campaign.

Pullard wrote:

In 2013, Pullard was a team captain, as he led the USC defense with 94 tackles. He added 5.5 tackles for loss, six pass breakups and one interception.

With Pullard back on the Trojans defense in 2014, he will have the opportunity to emerge as one of the top linebackers in college football.
