    I can assure you unless you are a true super star and known top 10 pic NFL teams like seeing kids stay all 4 years.

    Ahh, the perils of Pauline. A sad commentary on current events where all one has to do is put an @ before their comment and some people believe it.

    @cccasooner2; Stills returning for his senior year to keep intact the Cal Trio in celebrating OUs 8th national championship.

    Jefferson and Stills have already made their plans.

    If Kenny has a hard time going across the middle in the BIG XII, he is gonna hate the NFL....

  7. #57
    I can't believe anybody here would call Kenny Stills lazy or afraid. He always made tough catches - and if there was ever a receiver that made a highlight reel block - it was Stills. Guys that make blocks like that have to work at it - you can't be lazy or afraid to be in that position multiple times in a season. The dude is a baller. I would love to see him playing for my favorite NFL team!!! Just not next year ;-)

    For what it is worth. I straight up asked Kenny and he said he wasn't 100% either way but leaning towards leaving.

    Quick question, is he gone or not?... and I'll take it off the air.

    If Stills does leave early, OU still get 2 years out of Jaz right? Assuming this year was used as a redshirt?

    Nope, he already used his redshirt year last time he was suspended.

    Outstanding!

    don't think he'll go very high, but he won't go any higher sticking around with a new quarterback and/or offense next year. might as well go now.

    Y'all don't just jump to conclusions; you paratroop.

    Before declaring, a kid gets feedback from the NFL about where he's likely to go in the draft. This is some pretty critical information for most all, unless there's some family emergency or other pressing issue.

    ... and that process hasn't happened yet. So, Kenny can't possibly know what he wants to do. See, TheKing's comment.

    IF young Mr. Stills were to ask me for advice (which he hasn't, but I'm available) I'd tell him to get all the information he can. I'd tell him to talk to EVERYONE whose opinion he respects about this decision. Maybe he can get ahold of Mark Clayton, AD, Sam, Jamal Brown, or a host of other Sooners who know a hell of a lot more about this process than ANYONE on a damn message board. Seems like Jay Norvell might know a bit about the pros and cons of the pro's, too. (See what I did there? But, I've never actually met Mr. Norvell. I can only hope that he's a good guy who will look out for the best interests of the young men he coaches. The other coaches I've met, most of whom are no longer with the program, were ALL men I'd be happy to have mentor my own son).

    But, if you're reading this, Kenny, be aware that there are a whole bunch of folks who will be willing to take advantage of you. Because the love of money is the root of all evil, and all that. Or, even without the money/evil thing, they can still unwittingly project what they might think would be right for THEM onto you. Best you can do is educate yourself and make the decisions that are right for you.

    He WILL return. Coaches needed to tell "TREADWELL" that he would "PROBABLY" leave early for the NFL!

    I'm not sure when he'll get drafted, but wherever he gets drafted he'll be very high. Very high.

    Yeah, I don't quite get that. I want our guys to end up on teams that will benefit them personally. I don't really care about "getting the band back together" since that might not be the ideal situation for some of them.

    It definitely has piqued my interest in the Redskins this year...I still want the fighting DeMarco's to crush them though...

    Not sure if I agree...Past players that have stayed another year have not had very much luck improving during their senior year (Bradford, Gresham, Broyles LJ?. Also with a new QB, his number of receptions will prob go down. He should get his money while he can.

    Landry Jones made a very smart decision by returning. He improved as a QB, a leader and greatly improved his draft stock by playing his senior year.

    I don't know about that, last year he was graded out behind only Luck and RGIII and could have been playing at either Miami or Seattle this year. I think he could have improved as a QB a lot more in an NFL system than OU. This year it he will be lucky to go in the 3rd round.

Route running is good but not great.

    He may go, but he needs another year.
    Damn I agree with brutha. Actually a damn solid post.

    he goes this year.... he is staring 3rd round in the face

    Hope for the best for Stills whatever he decides to do. He has been a loyal Sooner and has come up big in plenty of games. Have no idea what his
    family financial situation is but he should do whatever is best for himself not OU. Let's not be selfish or pan a guy cause he may leave early. Same
    with Jefferson.

    Just imagine what could have done in '99, if De'mond Parker had come back.

    Kenny's dad played in the NFL for a few years so I would assume his family is relatively comfortable financially, Tony's family on the other hand.... isn't. I could be totally wrong on both though.

    You need to watch some of HS film, and some of his Hargrave film if you can find it,this kid can leap and if he ever gets loose in the open field which he didn't this season you'll see that Brown has nothing on this kid except an inch or so in height and Metoyer is about a half-step faster than Brown. Norvell stayed on this kid from day one and had to keep the HBC convinced he was worth the scholly.
