Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones, the school’s all-time leading passer, announced Thursday that he is returning to school for his senior year, while defensive end Ronnell Lewis, a highly-rated outside linebacker, decided to enter the NFL draft.

Here's what Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops had to say about both:

On Jones: "We know the positive influence Landry has on and off the field with our team. We're excited that he's coming back to build on what has already been an outstanding career. We expect another great year from him and like the fact that he's determined to be even better."

On Lewis: "Ronnell leaves with our best wishes. He managed several challenges while playing here, but always worked hard and gave us his very best effort. He has the skill to be a successful NFL player, and we feel he'll do well there."
