Bruin linebacker Deon Hollins announced today via his father's Twitter account that he will be returning for his senior season.

It is refreshing to see someone like Deon who obviously dreams of playing in the pro football choose to return to school to get his degree. Too many student-athletes these days are too quick to chase the dreams and paychecks of the National Football League or other pro sports while not finishing their education first.

Deon's decision is a testament to his character and I'm sure that his decision to make sure he has that UCLA diploma will never be one he regrets.

Glad to see you finish what you started, Deon!

Go Bruins!!!
