The MacBook Pro from early 2011 will support 16GB of ram. The Macbook Pro 15" (non-retina) were sold with a maximum upgradeable ram of 8GB from the factory. However you can check OWC with your exact model number and confirm that it supports 16Gb.
OWC states the models that support 16GB here: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_MacBook_MacBook_Pro/Upgrade/DDR3_1333MHz_SDRAM
