NORMAN, Okla. - One of the Sooners' top stars on the basketball court announced a decision about his future with the team on Friday.

Buddy Hield, a junior at the University of Oklahoma, led the Sooner basketball team to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen this past season.

After the loss to Michigan State, Hield said he would decide whether to stay at OU or become eligible for the NBA draft.

On Friday morning, Hield announced that he would stay at the university for his senior season.

He had been projected by some as a late first round draft pick.

Hield was recently named a third-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the Associated Press.

Those honors were in addition to him being named Big 12 Player of the Year.

He is also one of 15 finalists for the Wooden Award and one of five finalists for the inaugural Jerry West Award. buddy

Hield ranks fifth in OU history with his 202 career 3-pointers and 15th with his 1,366 points.
