COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri quarterback Drew Lock is returning to school for his senior season.
Lock announced his decision Tuesday. He had been considering entering this year's NFL draft.
He says he is coming back in part because he felt a sense of "responsibility and loyalty" to his coaches and teammates.
In 2017, Lock broke the school and SEC single-season records for touchdown passes with 44 while leading the Tigers to seven wins and their first bowl game since 2014.
With Lock behind center, Missouri will have nine returning starters on offense.
