According to Joe Schad of ESPN, Tony Jefferson and Kenny Stills have come to a decision following Oklahoma’s humiliating Cotton Bowl loss. OU’s top receiver and top defender will not be coming back for their senior season.
It should come as no surprise with a bleak 2013 outlook on OU football. However, their stock would have not changed that much from now and then.
It is definitely not ever good news when you lose two of your best players, but OU’s depth at receiver should leave whoever is under center with plenty of weapons. Although, the defense takes a big hit losing one of the best safeties in the country.
Stills was ranked as the fourteenth best receiver in the upcoming draft by ESPN, while Jefferson was ranked as the fifth best safety.
Obviously, they felt they’ve done all they needed to do in Oklahoma. They gave us some great entertainment on and off the field, and will be valuable assets to any organization.
Sooner fans already learned Friday Trey Millard would stay in school. Hopefully, Aaron Colvin will follow suit.
The Oklahoma secondary can not afford to lose both Jefferson and Colvin, especially after the way the defense broke down at the end of the season.
We wish the best of luck to Stills and Jefferson in the NFL, and we will all be watching in April to hear their names called.
