Sooners Checking in on 2016 DL McTelvin Agim

Diron Reynolds has started to make the rounds during spring evaluations and today he ventured to Hope, Arkansas to check in on 2016 DL McTelvin Agim. Agim is an intriguing prospect checking in at 6'3/269 pounds but is quick enough to play defensive end. Agim's offer list is monstrous with teams such as Bama, Ark, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, LSU, Ole Miss, Miss. St., Notre Dame, Stanford, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and the Sooners. The Sooners are defiintely among the teams in hunt for Agim. They lost ground after Jerry Montgomery left for the NFL. Time will tell, but it's incredibly difficult...

OU Softball | Paige Parker Throws Fourth Perfect Game Of Season

Will Oklahoma softball ever run out of top of the line talent? It doesn't look like it will for another three years, as freshman Paige Parker pitched her fourth perfect game of the season, tying an NCAA single season record. Parker did so while striking out 12 of 15 batters in the process, as the game ended in just five innings against Utah Valley. The Sooners ended up winning it 14-0 and sweeping the two game series against Utah. Parker ties Kyla Hall (Louisiana Lafayette) and Audrey West (Boston) as the only other players to pitch four perfect games in one season. She's also the first...

Baseball | Oklahoma's Hermelyn Homers Securing 5-3 Win Over Oklahoma State

Looking to end the weekend on a high note, the Oklahoma Sooners secured a 5-3 win over in-state rival, the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Sunday evening. The win snaps a season high five-game losing streak for the Sooners. Now standing 30-21 overall, OU hopes to build momentum with the post season looming just around the corner. For the third consecutive game, fans witnessed the Sooners take a quick first inning lead. Jumping out of the gate Taylor Alspaugh reached base by a four-ball count and advanced to third on a double by Kolbey Carpenter. Finally, Alspaugh crossed the plate on an...

Cowboys Rout Sooners 8-1 To Take Bedlam Baseball Series | Losing Streak Is At 5 Games

Facing arguably one of the best pitchers in the country on Saturday night, Oklahoma once again got off to a hot start in the Bedlam Series. After sophomore Alec Hansen struck out two O-State batters in the top of the first the Sooners took to the plate and worked in a run to take their second first inning lead over the Cowboys in as many night. OSU starter Michael Freeman issued walks to Craig Aikin and Josh Ake to start the bottom of the first. A fielder's choice by Kolbey Carpenter saw Ake get cut down at second but allowed Aikin to come home and put the Sooners up by a run heading into...

Aaron Ripkowski is a Green Bay Packer

Aaron Ripkowski will now have a chance to enter the same backfield as arguably the best quarterback in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers. He was drafted as the number 206 pick overall in the 6th round. With the 206th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the #Packers select FB Aaron Ripkowski, Oklahoma. #PackersDraft pic.twitter.com/yz1AK3TuZ4— Green Bay Packers (@packers) May 2, 2015 Several quick observations on Ripkowski 1. I would hate to hit him 2. I would hate to be hit by him. Ripkowski is a devastating lead blocker who has some surprising skills in the passing game. Ripkowski was easily one of...

Vikings Take Tyrus Thompson in 6th Round

The wait was a little longer than expected, but Tyrus Thompson now finds himself a Minnesota Viking. He was selected number 185 overall in the 6th round. 1st-Team All-Big 12 T @TyrusT_71 is now a member of the #Vikings! http://t.co/ildiwKQ0aZ pic.twitter.com/NIYCeQ1vwu— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) May 2, 2015 There are several things that stand out about Tyrus: 1. He is a man of impeccable character. He is not only one of the nicest players you will ever meet, but also is easily one of the first players that you would want to represent your team. 2. He is also a really good...

San Francisco Takes Tight End Blake Bell In The Fourth Round

As the fourth round of the NFL draft progresses more Sooners are coming off the board. Most recently was the selection of tight end Blake Bell who was taken 117th overall by the San Francisco 49ers. This selection surprised me a bit as I expected Bell to go in one of the final two rounds. However, the former quarterback showed enough in his one year as a tight end to get called up by the 49ers a bit earlier than that. The one time "Belldozer" was the MVP of the 2011 Insight Bowl and made a name for himself in short yardage packages. It's his frame (6-6/252) and his athleticism that will...

Oklahoma's Daryl Williams Goes To Carolina In Fourth Round

As the NFL Draft rolls on, so does the list of players from the University of Oklahoma that are hearing their names called. Offensive tackle Daryl Williams was the third player selected on Saturday as the fourth round of the draft opened up. The Panthers traded up to take the two-time All Big 12 player as the 102nd overall pick of this year's draft. Possessing a massive frame (6-6/329) Williams can be a bull rusher on running plays and can get into a defender on pass blocking very well. He's quick off the ball and slides to pass protect very well. He best assets are his size and strength...

Oklahoma State 9 - Oklahoma 6 | Bedlam Baseball Notes And Quotes

Use the media player to listen to the post game interviews Notables • Junior outfielder Craig Aikin notched three hits in the game marking his 20th multi-hit game of the...

9-6 Loss In Bedlam Opener Puts Oklahoma On A Four-Game Losing Streak

Bad memories. That's all that the Sooners had from their previous meeting with Oklahoma State this season. Less than a month ago, on a Tuesday night non-conference affair, the Cowboys rocked Oklahoma by a score of 24-2. It was one of those losses that you'd soon rather forget but instead it gets stuck in your head. "Yeah, I think about it." Oklahoma shortstop Sheldon Neuse said when asked about that night. Now as OU and OSU started their conference series at ONEOK Field, in Tulsa, on Friday night the Sooners were determined to make this one different. A three-run first, aided by RBI singles...

New England Picks Up Geneo Grissom Late in the Third Round

The reigning Super Bowl champions are known for their smart defensive players, it's how the Patriots have been so successful as a franchise since the turn of the millennium. They continued that trend in the 2015 NFL Draft, taking versatile defensive end Geneo Grissom in the third round. He was drafted 97th overall, joining Dorial Green-Beckham (40th) and Jordan Phillips (52nd) as the only other former Oklahoma players drafted this far. The third Oklahoma player selected was the one with the most experience, appearing in 40 games in four seasons for the Sooners. He picked up 17 tackles for...

DT Jordan Phillips Drafted by Dolphins in Second Round

While the Sooners had zero first round picks in the 2015 NFL Draft, (RS) sophomore Jordan Phillips became the second Sooner drafted after Dorial Green-Beckham was selected in the second round. Phillips, a Kansas native, has tremendous size (6-5/329 lbs) and a unique skill-set that could turn him into a huge steal as the 52nd pick in the draft. While he only played one full season at Oklahoma after injuring his back in the 2013 season, Phillips made a huge difference in the running game this past season up front. His massive size and talent made him hard to guard, which is how he earned...

The End of an Era that Never Began: Dorial Green-Beckham

He was destined to be a Sooner until he chose to be a Tiger. Sooner fans were all but assured that he would grace Owen field, destroying secondaries and giving Big 12 defensive coordinators nightmares.That never happened. After spurning the Sooners for Mizzou, we watched him begin to reach his potential and terrify the SEC. His stats at Mizzou were definitely respectable 87 catches for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns. After his sophomore season with the Tigers DGB was kicked off the Tiger football teams for issues that we all know to well by now. Dorial eventually decided to transfer and come...

May Class of 2016 Predictions

Again this is probably the least accurate attempt ever because offers are going out every day and we are still almost a year away from NSD 2016. That being said, here is my class of 2016 predictions for the month of May. I have the class ending up with 21 players. QUARTERBACK - 1 1. Austin Kendall 6-2/210 COMMITMENT RUNNING BACK - 1 Devwah Whaley 5-10/200 Whaley has the Sooners firmly in the mix. I expect in the end he will be a Sooner. This will not be easy as A&M is pushing hard for him as well. TIGHT END - 0 WIDE RECEIVER - 3 Adrian Hardy 6-3/185 COMMIT Ryan Parker 6-2/175 JUCO...

Three Question Thursday | Our Take On The NFL Draft

As we approach the NFL Draft we thought it would be appropriate to aim our three questions at a few of the Sooners who are eligible to get their names called this weekend. 1. Will Jordan Phillips have his name called tonight or is he going to be a second round guy? Rich: Phillips is a rare combination of size and athleticism. However, the concern may be with the lack of experience and back issues. I still think he goes late first round though. Joey: I don't think he goes tonight but I wouldn't be surprised if he went as the 32nd overall pick to New England and filled a big hole there at...

A Big Night for OG Denzel Okafor

2016 OG Denzel Okafor 6-4/290 has had a pretty big night. In the span of an hour he tweeted out that he had received offers from Texas and OU. While we don't consider Texas offers that big of deal, we do see it as a quite the accomplishment to receive an offer from the Sooners. Denzel also has offers from schools like Ark, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, TCU, TTech, and Washington. Here is the tweet where Okafor tweeted out his Sooner offer. No word can describe how blessed I am to get my 12th offer from Oklahoma! #BoomerSooner pic.twitter.com/OFWxhbUHGN— Okie (@DenzelOkafor) April 30,...

Sooners Offer Multiple 2016 Defensive Lineman

The Sooners are expected to take at most 3 defensive lineman in the class of 2016, as the only player who will exhaust his eligibility after the 2015 season will be Charles Tapper. Couple that with a new DL coach in Diron Reynolds, abd you get what has been a really quiet spring for recruiting along the defensive line. That is slowing starting to change as the Sooners have sent out two offers to in the past few days to two prospects from Wichita, KS and Duncanville, TX. 1. Marcel Southall 6-3/270 from Duncanville, TX. 2016 DT @marcel_southall (Duncanville, TX) has been offered by...

College Baseball | Wichita State Shockers Come From Behind To Defeat Oklahoma Sooners 9-8

Jumping out to an early 6-0 lead, head coach Pete Hughes utilized the versatility of his players by changing the lineup. With a little room breathe, the Oklahoma Sooners relaxed while the Wichita State Shockers stormed back. Taking their first lead in the 8th inning off, WSU held on to win the game 9-8. After a single scoreless inning, the flood gates opened for the Sooners with a sac-fly from Jacob Evans to push the first run of the evening across the plate.
