STILLWATER, Okla. —  Oklahoma State wide receiver Josh Stewart announced on Instagram Tuesday he will be entering the 2014 NFL Draft.

Stewart, a junior, pulled down a team-leading 60 receptions for 703 yards this year for the Cowboys. The All-Big 12 receiver had three receiving touchdowns and also returned two punts for touchdowns.

His numbers dropped this year from his sophomore season in 2012 when he caught 101 passes for 1,210 yards and seven touchdowns. He also returned two punts for touchdowns

Stewart wrote on Instagram, “First I wanna thank God for this opportunity, and for all the Cowboy fans that’s been the most loyal and true fans I’ve ever been around!”

Stewart added: “I’ve been so blessed and I’m thankful for you guys! I would like to just let you all know that I’ve decided to declare and enter the NFL Draft! One of the most hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my life. But I’m ready for this life and I hope all my friends and Cowboy family continue to follow me throughout this journey I’m gonna be preparing for! Thanks for everything Cowboy Nation I will rep Pokes until my time on this earth is up!”

Stewart came to Oklahoma State from Denton (Texas) Guyer High School in Texas.

Josey NFL bound

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri junior running back Henry Josey has declared for the NFL draft.

Tuesday’s announcement comes four days after Josey was the offensive player of the game for the Tigers’ Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State. Josey ran for three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score. Josey called it a “bittersweet decision.”

Josey missed all of 2012 with a left knee injury, and rebounded this year with 1,166 yards rushing while ranking second in the SEC with 16 touchdowns.

 He and Tony Temple are the only Missouri running backs to post two 1,000-yard seasons.

Missouri has depth at running back, with Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy returning next season.
