Kelly was the team's second-leading receiver this season with 49 receptions for 821 yards and nine touchdowns, helping the No. 8 Sooners finish 11-3. His 21 career touchdown catches rank second in school history behind Mark Clayton's 30.
``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.''
Kelly said he discussed his options with his family and several friends who are playing in the NFL before making the decision.
``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.''
As a sophomore last season, the 6-foot-4, 219-pound Kelly had 62 catches for 992 yards and 10 touchdowns.
