After the news from Mike Evans and Johnny Manziel earlier this week, this is a pleasant surprise.

The Aggie offensive tackle announced via Twitter on Thursday that he would be returning to College Station for his senior season in 2014.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>I am excited to return to College Station to continue my education and play another season with your coaches and teammates.</p>&mdash; Cedric Ogbuehi (@Nuff_ced70) <a href="https://twitter.com/Nuff_ced70/statuses/421323482702434304">January 9, 2014</a></blockquote>

The Junior, who has started 32 career games, shifted from guard to tackle before the 2013 season and saw his NFL draft stock rise throughout the year, grading out as a first-rounder. Like Jake Matthews, who skipped out on the draft last year, Ogbuehi will likely slide to left tackle to showcase his talents even more. Having him back for his fourth year will once again give us one of the more cohesive offensive lines in the SEC. Gig 'em, Ced, and welcome back to Aggieland.
