INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts have signed first-round draft selection, quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck was the first overall choice in the 2012 NFL Draft.

He finished his collegiate career having completed 713-of-1,064 passes for 9,430 yards, 82 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Luck also netted 957 rushing yards, the most ever gained by a Stanford quarterback.

In 38 career games, he was responsible for 89 touchdowns and compiled a 31-7 record as a starter, including a 24-5 mark in conference games. His 31 victories are the most a Stanford quarterback has recorded in a career.
