Landry Jones and Whitney Hand, Oklahoma’s celebrity couple, got engaged Sunday night, the two announced via social media Sunday evening.

Jones, OU’s quarterback, and Hand, a guard on the OU’s women’s basketball team, have been dating for two-and-a-half years.

“Thank you all for the sweet engagement wishes!!! We are so blessed by all of our sweet friends and can’t wait for this journey!!!” Hand tweeted late Sunday.

In an October 2009 interview with The Oklahoman, Hand talked about her relationship with Jones.

"We’ve helped each other grow,” Hand said. "It’s nice to have a best friend who can really help you athletically, spiritually, emotionally. We’ve had a lot of fun.”
