Malcolm Kelly Is Heading To The NFL

Junior wide receiver Malcolm Kelly announcet Thursdat that he is leaving Oklahoma after his junior season to go to the NFL.

"We're excited for Malcolm and his family," coach Bob Stoops said in a statement Thursday. "He was an outstanding player in our program and we appreciate all of his efforts."

This announcement really isn't a surprise to anyone as Kelly seemed to be out the door immediately following the Sooners' win over top ranked Missouri in the Big 12 championship game.

"OU and the coaches there gave me the best opportunity to reach the pro level," Kelly said. "Going to OU was really the thing that put me in the position to be able to make this decision."

We'll miss ya Malcolm and would have loved to have actually seen you play in a BCS bowl game but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Good luck in the NFL!
