Barring a late change of heart, Ryan Broyles will return to OU for his senior season according to a source close to Broyles. The record-setting wideout received his draft grade from the NFL this week. According to the source, Broyles was given a "2" meaning he is expected to be a 2nd-round pick. "Hes coming back for sure. Hes 100% coming back," the source told me on Wednesday night.
Tired of answering the question, Im told the former Norman High star took the "no comment" and "I havent decided yet" route during Fiesta Bowl week in Arizona. Broyles has been leaning toward coming back all along Im told, but he wanted to wait to see his NFL Draft grade before making it offcial. Expect Broyles to follow linebacker Travis Lewis lead and make his announcement of his intentions to return sometime this week.
