Josiah St. John Touted As Potential No. 1 Pick In 2016 CFL Draft

The Oklahoma Sooners have consistently developed talent along the offensive line over the past decade. Now with the 2016 Canadian Football League Draft on the horizon, linemen are considered a premium. After assessing the field, more than a handful of teams are eyeing one product out of the University of Oklahoma. The most recent mock draft lists Josiah St. John as the No. 1 overall pick. Of course a lot could change between now and the actual draft date of May 10th. Hailing from the city of Toronto, St. John landed at OU after taking the junior college route. Following a redshirt season...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Looking Back At The 2016 NFL Draft

Over the course of history, the Oklahoma Sooners have consistently supplied the NFL with next level talent dating back to 1936. Since taking over as head coach, Bob Stoops has witnessed thirteen former players selected in the first round. However, a former Sooners has not earned a first round selection since Lane Johnson completed the feat in 2012. Heading into the 2016 NFL Draft, the potential to break the trend rose significantly while riding the shoulders of one Sterling Shepard. Player Pos.

Zack Sanchez Called In 5th Round By Carolina Panthers

Zack Sanchez became the 49th defensive back from the University of Oklahoma to hear his name called on Draft Day. Taken during the fifth round with the 141st overall pick, the Carolina Panthers opted for the high risk high reward style of play from Sanchez. With the 141st pick, the #Panthers select Oklahoma CB Zack Sanchez! #PanthersDraft pic.twitter.com/cjdwhDiYij — Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) April 30, 2016 "This guy when he gets his hands on the football, he can finish and take it to the house."@ZSanchez15 ➡️ @Panthershttps://t.co/wWzTtZ3cIb — Oklahoma Football...

2016 NFL Draft Predictions | Throwing Darts At The Big 12 Dartboard

When it comes to predicting the NFL Draft it's always a mix between an exact science and a crap shoot. Here's our best guess as to who is going where from the Big 12 Conference. 1st Round First Player Selected From The Big 12 | Josh Doctson, TCU | A standout receiver who should blossom into an NFL star. Doctson will fit nicely with the Vikings offense as the 23rd overall pick. A Close Second | Corey Coleman, Baylor | I thing there's a legitimate chance that we'll see back-to-back receivers taken from the Big 12 with Coleman going to Cincinnati with the 24th pick. Other Big 12 First...

2016 NFL Draft Predictions | Oklahoma Sooners LB Dominique Alexander

Dominique Alexander was a constant staple in the middle of the Sooners defense for three years, before foregoing his senior year and entering the NFL Draft. While he was more than productive while in Norman, we have some pretty vast differences on our predictions for his future NFL success. Here are Dominique Alexander's measurements HT/WT: 6-0/232 Bench: 17 reps Vertical: 28 1/2" Matt I think if Dominique Alexander's brother was younger instead of older then he'd be back to OU for his senior year. However, the allure of jumping to the NFL with Tulsa defensive lineman, and older brother...

2016 NFL Draft Predictions | Oklahoma Sooners LB Devante Bond

Where are starting a series of posts leading up to the NFL Draft giving our thoughts about the different draft eligible Sooners as well as predictions on where they will be drafted. Here are Devante Bond's results from the NFL combine HT: 6-1 WT: 235 lbs. 40 Yard Dash: 4.70 VERTICAL: 37.5" Matt Devante Bond is still very raw and in many ways still learning the game. His biggest asset is going to be his speed and his explosiveness coming off the line of scrimmage. It’ll allow him to be a very good edge rusher in a 4-3 scheme where he’ll make a living as a blitzing SAM backer. He...

Oklahoma Sooners WR John Humphrey To Transfer

The Oklahoma Sooners have plenty of wide receivers competing for a spot in the rotation this upcoming fall. Arriving a semester early after choosing OU over the likes of Notre Dame, John Humphrey filled a crucial role on the scout team. Often tasked with mimicking the oppositions top receiver, Humphrey earned the label of Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year. Now with a year of experience in Lincoln Riley's system, the redshirt freshman was expected to compete for time on the field. Yet, it appears as though Humphrey made other plans after deliberations with those close to...

Schedule Change | Oklahoma Sooners Host Oklahoma State Cowboys Baseball Wednesday at 6:00 PM

After a winless weekend on the road at the No. 7 TCU Horned Frogs, the Oklahoma Sooners return home to host the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a midweek non-conference match-up. Originally slotted for Tuesday at 6:00 PM CST, Pete Hughes planned to throw yet another freshman arm in Jake Irvin. However, the game has been pushed back to Wednesday with the 6:00 PM start time remaining intact. Over the course of the season, Coach Hughes has found success by utilizing the freshman class. Up to this point, twelve of the Sooners eighteen wins can be credited to freshmen. It then should be no surprise as...

Oklahoma Softball Defeats Texas 5-3 To Sweep The Series

Oklahoma starter Kelsey Stevens worked her way around two baserunners, in the top of the first, produce a scoreless inning for the Longhorns. Texas was able to reciprocate thanks to a double-play and the stage was set for another epic battle between OU and their rivals from the south. The pitcher's duel lasted until the third inning, despite a close call in the second. Kandy Self led off the bottom of the second with a single to right and then two batters later Fake Aviu singled up the middle. Nicole Pendley added the third single of the inning to load the bases but the Sooners would leave...

Sooners Turning To Freshmen Arms Against Horned Frogs This Weekend

Oklahoma's recent wave of success has come on the heels of Pete Hughes' newer players finding a rhythm and making the necessary adjustments to baseball in the Big 12. After being swept at Texas Tech to open up conference play the Sooners have bounced back to win their series against both Texas and Baylor. Now as they face the road one more time Hughes is turning to a pair of freshmen to take charge on the mound. Ryan Madden will start the series for the Sooners. In twenty innings this season Madden has a 1-2 record with a 3.60 ERA. He's fanned eleven batters with walking six and allowing a...

Sooners Blast Shockers 15-7 To Continue Hot Streak

After plating three runs in the first inning, Oklahoma sent twelve batters to the plate, and scored eight of them, to blow the game wide open and allow Pete Hughes young squad to coast with an 11-0 lead. Former OU quarterback Cody Thomas blasted his third home run of the season to lead off the fourth and was followed up by RBI base hits from Steele Walker and Jack Flansburg to push their lead to 14-0 in front of Wichita State's home crowd at Eck Stadium. Oklahoma's final run of the evening came in...

Oklahoma Sooner, Hunter Haley Named National Player of the Week

Over the course of the past week, the Oklahoma Sooners picked up three wins including a series clinching win over the weekend against the Baylor Bears. Starting to find their stride in the thick of conference play, one player was recognized above all others, Hunter Haley. During the four game stretch, Haley witnessed his batting average climb out from the sub .200 range after going 6-of-14 for the week.

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball | A Look At The Past Week

The Oklahoma Sooners Baseball program entered the season inside the top twenty-five but dropped the first two games of a four game series against Northwestern to start the year. While it may not have been a cause for panic, it certainly was not the start Pete Hughes was hoping for during the 2016 campaign. Bouncing back to rattling off a five game win streak on the west coast before the start of conference play, this group seemed to be pulling together at the right moment. Unfortunately, the Sooners found themselves 0-3 to start conference play after being swept by the Texas Tech Red...

Current Commits - 11 1. 4-Star QB Chris Robison 6-1/185 from Mesquite, TX Chris has all the tools to thrive in the Lincoln Riley's system. He is also easily one of the biggest recruiters the Sooners have. 2.

His name alone makes him...
