Defensive Back Chanse Sylvie Commits to OU

The class of 2016 commitment drought ended today as the Sooners picked up a a commit from Shreveport, LA defensive back Chanse Sylvie 6-0/186. Sylvie was one of the earliest Sooner offers and a commitment that many had been hoping would come for a while. However as the process played out, many had thought the the Sooners had slipped with Sylvie, but he put that to rest today with this tweet. I will like to announce that after many prayers and restless night I have committed to the University of Oklahoma #OU pic.twitter.com/0v7x4luhSP— Chanse Sylvie  (@ChanseSylvie) July 30, 2015 Sylvie...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Preview | Big 12 Position Rankings (Defensive Secondary)

Facing the spread attack each weekend in conference play it can take it's toll on a defensive secondary...especially if you're defensive backs don't have the combination of being both fast and physical. Exploiting the mismatches is the aim of the spread attack and the fewer of those mismatches you have the better your chances are for survival. Here's our take on ranking the Big 12 secondaries. 1. Baylor - The Bears return all four starters at corner and safety, including All-Conference free safety Orion Stewart who recorded 82 tackles and four interceptions in 2014. Sophomore...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 37 Days!

With just 37 days until kickoff, it's time to look at one of the biggest touchdowns for Bob Stoops in recent memory. In a tight top five match up with Florida State on the road, the Sooners were tied 13-13 in the fourth quarter when Kenny Stills number was called. Landry Jones heaved up the ball in the endzone with one defender on Stills, with an incredible grab to put the Sooners up 7 after the extra point. The 37 yard touchdown in Doak Campbell highlighted Landry Jones and Kenny Stills career as a Sooner. Here's the electric throw and catch :

Is Bob Stoops Hinting That Baker Mayfield Is Leading The Quarterback Competition?

It's still technically the off-season but that doesn't mean there isn't still a whole lot to discuss when it comes to the 2015 Oklahoma Sooners football team. With multiple position battles set to begin when OU opens camp next week the most glamorous of them all it the battle for the starting quarterback where it's a neck-and-neck race...or not. At last week's Big 12 Media Days Bob Stoops pretty much eliminated Cody Thomas from the competition and made it a two-man race between Baker Mayfield and Trevor Knight. "Trevor Knight and Baker Mayfield are in a tight battle, and Cody Thomas is...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Preview | Big 12 Position Rankings (Linebackers)

At the top of the league the Big 12 is thick with talent at linebacker but from the midway point on down the conference is reloading which leaves a ton of question marks. As we move through our position rankings we'll discover that the Sooners are the kings of the conference when it comes to talent and depth at linebacker. Here's how we rank the Big 12 from first to worst at the position. 1. Oklahoma - An embarrassment of riches is available for the Sooners at a position that was recently thought to be a weak spot on the defense. Junior Dominique Alexander is the Big 12's leading...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 38 Days!

One of the greatest Oklahoma football players to ever play, Roy Williams was a huge reason for Oklahoma's early success with Bob Stoops. No. 38 was a daunting safety who's nickname was Superman after the miraculous play in the Red River Rivalry game where he jumped over the Texas linemen forcing an interception to win the football game. It's one of the most memorable plays in Oklahoma football history. In 2001, Superman was a first team All-American, Jim Thorpe Award winner, Nagurski Trophy winner, and was a first round draft pick after that season. He went on to be one of the most...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Preview | Big 12 Position Rankings (D-Line)

The last position group that we looked at was the offensive line and not, as we turn the tables to defense, we're going to look at their counterparts along the defensive line. Just like offensive success is gained or lost based on the line the same is true with the defense. In the era of the Big 12 arms race, where speed is king, having the ability to push the offense backwards is more crucial than ever before. Here's how we're ranking the defensive lines around the conference. 1. Baylor - Curious as to how Art Briles is building his program at a rapid pace? Well check out where...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 39 Days!

From September 10th, 2005 to October 1st, 2011 the Sooners were not only unbeatable at home they were also dominant. Big 12 and non-conference opponents alike fell to Oklahoma by an average score of 30 points per game during that span of time. Some of the more notable wins to come during that streak were the Washington Huskies in 2006, the Miami Hurricanes in 2007, 17th ranked Cincinnati, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and 12th ranked Texas Tech in 2008. Despite a disastrous start to the 2009 season the Sooners were still able to blank Oklahoma State 27-0 in Norman that year. The 2010 season saw...

Sooners LB Offer Bryce Youngquist Will Make His Commitment on Friday

The Sooners find themselves in a dog fight in their pursuit of top 2016 LB Bryce Youngquist. The California star recently visited the Sooners and had a chance to take in the Sooner program first hand. Depending on what you read, he has the Oregon Ducks slightly ahead of the Sooners or they are tied. We won't have to wait long to find out the answer as Youngquist tweeted out earlier today that he would be making his commitment on Friday. Thank you to all the great coaches and universities who recruited me. I will be committing this Friday 7-31-15 @ 4pm PT. God Bless. — Bryce Youngquist...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 40 Days!

A product of Kingfisher High School, linebacker Curtis Lofton exploded on the scene during the 2007 season recording 157 total tackles and (10.5 for loss), 3 interceptions, and caused four fumbles. The Football Writers Association of America, Sporting News, and Sports Illustrated all named him as a First Team All-American and the AP had him as a Second Team All-American. Against Missouri, that season, he recorded 18 tackles and scored a touchdown off a fumble recovery. The following spring Lofton was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the second round of the NFL Draft. He currently plays...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 41 Days!

As we edge closer to Oklahoma's September 5th season opener against Akron day 41 reminds us of the 2013 game at Kansas State. The Wildcats were unranked at the time of the game but that didn't stop them from putting up three touchdowns on OU in the second quarter to draw within 24-21 at the half. A balanced third quarter had the Sooners leading 27-24 heading into the final 15 minutes of the game but a 3 yard touchdown run by Brennan Clay and a 74 yard pick six by Zack Sanchez sealed the deal for a 41-31 Oklahoma victory. The Sooners beat Oklahoma State 33-24, in Stillwater, two weeks later...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 42 Days

In 2006, the year that started Oklahoma's three consecutive Big 12 championships, Oklahoma's defense was outstanding. The defense was led by no. 42 Rufus Alexander, who was first team All-American that season. Alexander also won the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year award that season. The most feared linebacker in the Big 12 recorded 118 tackles, four forced fumbles and recovered two to go with one interception. He started every game in 2005 and 2006 and led the team in tackles both years as well. At the time, he was the first Sooner to do so since Rocky Calmus did it three seasons in a...

Momma!!! There go that MAN!— Jay Boulware...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 43 Days!

It took 43 years for someone to break Greg Pruitt's school record for rushing yards in a game (294), a record that was broken last November when Samaje Perine ran for an incredible 427 yards against Kansas. The Sooners have had many great running backs throughout the years, but none were able to put up a more dominant performance than Perine. But then again, no running back in FBS history has every dominated a game more than Perine dominated the Jayhawks that afternoon. When you look back and think on all of the amazing running backs college football has had in the past 100+ years, it makes...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 44 Days!

Dating all the back to Southwest Conference in 1915 and running right up to the Big XII Conference in 2012, the Oklahoma Sooners have hoisted the conference crown a total of 44 times. However, no head coach at the University of Oklahoma has been able to replicate Bud Wilkinson's run. During the 1946 season, Wilkinson coached his squad to a Big 6 Conference title. Unfortunately, the honor was shared with the Kansas Jayhawks after posting a 7-2-1 overall record. The following year, Wilkinson proved it wasn't a fluke earning an outright title after going undefeated in the new Big 7 Conference...

2015 Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 45 Days!

We vowed to not mention it again, but with 45 days till Akron, we have to take a look  back on the monumental beat down of the Crimson Tide as the Sooners rolled up 45 points en route to what we all assumed would be a program defining win. Trevor Knight was Peyton Manning like, completing over 78% percent of his passes to go along with 4 touchdown passes. Coming into the game Knight had only completed 47 total passes on the season. He torched the Crimson Tide secondary for 348 yards and completed passes to 9 different wide receivers. The Sooner defense forced 5 turnovers, the last of which...

The Fastest Rising Prospect in Oklahoma: OL Tramonda Moore

It's not often that a player goes unnoticed in your own backyard, but Tramonda Moore (6-5/330) from John Marshall High School in Oklahoma City has gone from under the radar, to an offer explosion over the past month. Moore has picked up offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Georgia, and Alabama as his recruiting has taken off. Moore is immensely talented, as his film jumps off the screen. The big question with Moore centers around his ability to qualify. Moore's talent is too great and he is a take regardless of his academic situation. He is a guy you sign and then hope he takes the...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 46 Days!

The Oklahoma Sooners traveled to Ames, Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones. Opening up the game with a 46-yard pass to Sterling Shepard, the tone was set for the entire game. Unfortunately, the reception was the last of the game for Shepard who left with a muscle strain in his leg. During the outing, Trevor Knight became the first FBS player to throw for three touchdowns and rush for another three. It was certainly a confidence builder for a team that had dropped two games in conference prior to the meeting. At the time it was welcomed as Oklahoma would face the Baylor Bears in Norman...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Trevor Knight On Why He Can Be The Man In 2015

Heading into the 2015 season, the Oklahoma Sooners have an open quarterback race. While it's nothing new, fans expect to see the Trevor Knight of the Sugar Bowl against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Having two years of starting experience, Knight could easily enter the upcoming season with the title of "starting quarterback." The challenger is none other than Baker Mayfield, the 2013 Offensive Freshman of the Year at Texas Tech. Deciding to transfer, the talented signal caller sat out a year due to the transfer rule. Already gaining popularity and respect from fellow teammates, many fans would...

Oklahoma Sooners | Big 12 Media Days | Bob Stoops "I Believe He'll [Samaje Perine] Continue To Improve"

The Oklahoma Sooners brought in a new offensive coordinator, Lincoln Riley, after a disappointing end. Expected to implement an air raid offense, Riley cannot under utilize the talented backfield he inherits. Bursting onto the season, Samaje Perine amassed 1713 total yards to go along side 21 touchdowns. Just image if the kid had started all 13 games of the season for the Oklahoma Sooners. It's hard to believe the power witnessed a year ago was contained in a true freshman body. Now, heading into a sophomore season with a year in a collegiate weight training program under his belt, how far...
