On the same day he reported who the finalists were for Hundley, Jason Jewell of Scout.com (subscription required) was informed by the talented quarterback that Washington and UCLA were his top two schools.
However, an SEC juggernaut tried hard to get in the race in July 2010.
Indeed, according to Brandon Huffman of Scout.com (subscription required), LSU made a charge for Hundley.
However, he maintained his focus on Washington and UCLA.
With the Dawgs, head coach Steve Sarkisian and quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier were in charge of the pursuit of Hundley, but he told Allen Wallace of Scout.com (subscription required) in August 2010 that he knew he'd have to battle Nick Montana and Keith Price for playing time after Jake Locker left.
Meanwhile, head coach Rick Neuheisel and offensive coordinator Norm Chow were the main contacts for Hundley at UCLA. He told Huffman that he didn't mind the possible competition in Westwood, admired the academics and stated how he enjoyed the weather.
Wallace also reported Hundley would be taking visits to both schools in August 2010.
