UCLA strongside linebacker Akeem Ayers, projected as a first-round draft choice in the 2011 NFL draft, said he has not set a timeframe for deciding on whether to return for his senior season.

“I haven’t really thought about it yet,” Ayers said Tuesday. “Haven’t had time. So now that we’re not going to a bowl game I’ll have a lot of time to think about it.”

Ayers has recorded 65 tackles, 91/2 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions and recovered a pair of fumbles.
