"I’ve dreamed about playing at Oklahoma ever since I was little,” Bradford said. "My three years here have probably been the best three years of my life, and I really feel there’s no need to cut this experience short. I’m really looking forward to coming back and competing for a fourth straight Big 12 Championship and another opportunity at a national championship.”
Junior tight end Jermaine Gresham and junior offensive tackle Trent Williams both considered leaving for the draft, but will join Bradford at OU.
Sooner coach Bob Stoops said: "They understand the value of gaining another year of experience and improving their position in the draft along with the value of either finishing their degree.”
