NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Quarterback Landry Jones has decided to come back for his senior year at Oklahoma, saying “there is still a lot more to do.”
Jones said Thursday that it would be a great honor to play in the NFL, but with most of the offensive line, several receivers and defensive players returning, the team hopes to get another shot at a national championship.
Jones is the Sooners’ all-time leading passer with 12,389 yards.
Coach Bob Stoops said Jones has had a positive influence on and off the field with his teammates and he’s pleased with Jones’ decision. Oklahoma finished the 2011 season at 10-3.
Sooners defensive end Ronnell Lewis, meanwhile, said he plans to skip his senior year and enter the NFL draft.
Lewis had 60 tackles in 10 games, including 13 for a loss, and 5.5 sacks. Over the past three seasons, he’s played in 34 games and collected 119 tackles and 10 sacks.
