NORMAN, OK - Oklahoma will have at least 1 of its draft-eligible players back for another season. It's still unclear whether Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will stay or go.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy says he plans to return for his junior season. He confirmed his decision at the sixth-ranked Sooners' basketball game against Texas on Monday night.

McCoy redshirted his first year at Oklahoma and was eligible to enter the NFL draft for the first time. He ranked second on the team with 6 1/2 sacks this season, but had been expected to return.

ESPN.com first reported McCoy's decision.
