We interrupt this steady stream of college football players announcing that they're leaving school early to bring you news of one player who has decided to return. Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope took to his Twitter account on Thursday to tell the world that he'd be returning to College Station for his senior season.

"Looking forward to wearing maroon and white one more season! Can't wait to play for [Kevin] Sumlin and be a part of something special. Gigem!" tweeted Swope.

Swope had quite the breakout season for the Aggies in 2011, becoming Ryan Tannehill's most reliable target. The junior set single season school records by catching 89 passes for 1,207 yards and also pulled in 11 touchdowns. So Aggieland has to be happy to know that one of its biggest playmakers will be returning to the team next season when Texas A&M makes the move to the SEC and the gauntlet that is the SEC West.

Ryan Swope returning to Texas A&M

Big Whoop.  I would have headed to the Pro's after such a good season - he's probably going to get shut down in the SEC and experience mediocre numbers which in turn could de-value him heading into the NFL.  Just calling it like I see it.
