Stanford quickly became an early favorite for 2011 with Andrew Luck's announcement that he will be returning to school next fall. You can go ahead and add Oklahoma to that list of early favorites with wide receiver Ryan Broyles also announcing his return for 2011.
"Personally, I know I can mature as a person and a player and get myself better prepared for the NFL," he said in his official release. "I want to win more championships and break every record possible as a receiver. I'm fortunate to have the players around me who can help me achieve those goals."
Broyles finished the regular season as the nation's leader in receptions per game, and third in receiving yards per game. With Landry Jones still under center, there isn't any reason to believe they can't repeat some of that success again next year. Also, Broyles' announcement came one day after linebacker Travis Lewis announced he would return to Norman for his senior season to win a championship.
Bob Stoops' team was frequently overlooked as a contender in 2010, because of road losses to Missouri and Texas A&M. But with a Big 12 Championship and Fiesta Bowl title under their belt, next year's squad is focused on reclaiming the top spot in college football.
