Update Weds. PM: It's official. Bradford is coming back to OU for another season.
Despite previous rumors that he would enter the NFL draft, Oklahoma Sooners QB and Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will apparently head back to school for another year. Smart guy.
Quarterback Sam Bradford is expected to announce that he will return to Oklahoma next season, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad.
Bradford will apparently announce his decision in a couple of hours, at 4:30 PM central time.
Offensive tackle Trent Williams, who said Wednesday that he would return to the Sooners next season, said he believes Bradford will return.
"My gut feeling is that Sam is coming back," said Williams, who spoke with Bradford. "The entire state may be very happy."
That makes Georgia QB Matt Stafford pretty much the #1 QB recruit in this class. Somebody will bite high on Stafford and my prediction is that they will get burned. Without Bradford, the Kansas City Chiefs will almost assuredly not go after a 1st round quarterback in this year's draft.
So, if Bradford isn't in the equation, I say we have to be looking to trade down. With who? Now I'm not sure. And I know that's easier said than done.
