TULSA - OSU's quest for an even better season in 2011 was enhanced this afternoon when the dynamic pass and catch pair of QB Brandon Weeden and WR Justin Blackmon both decided to come back for another year of college football.
Blackmon was a projected late first round, early second round NFL draft pick, while Weeden was considered a late second round pick.
Both said they were coming back to help the Cowboys in 2011, and enhance their draft status for the following season.
The two held a joint news conference in Stillwater this afternoon to announce their intentions.
Blackmon set a school record for one season with 111 catches, 1,782 yards in receptions, and 20 touchdowns.
Weeden threw for 34 TD's and close to 4,300 yards passing.
OSU had its best season ever, winning 11 games, capped by the blowout victory over Arizona in the Alamo Bowl.
