— Wearing No. 81 has become a sense of pride for Oklahoma State’s Jhajuan Seales.

After all, he sees the success Justin Blackmon had while wearing it for the Cowboys. And after a breakout season last year, Seales is hoping he can be even better this season.

Seales caught 39 passes for 571 yards and three touchdowns last season as a true freshman. Now, he’s expected to be the top target and a team leader.

He recently spoke with The Oklahoman about his role, Blackmon and the offseason.

Q: What does wearing No. 81 like Blackmon mean to you?

A: I see all of the things that he did here, but I just come to play and do great things for the team and come along with the rest of the group.

There are a lot of high expectations for you this season. How do you respond when you hear that?

I don’t try to pay attention to it. I just try to get around with the young guys, try to be great as a group and as a team. It’s very important to step up and help the younger guys come up because we have a great team and they need to be directed on the right path to come up and be ready to play in big games.
