  08/17/19 - Jalen HurtsSr/2020, Oklahoma, 6-1, 219 (DS#3 QB) + More +

  Hurts is 21 and has already graduated from Alabama with a degree in communications. Running back Trey Sermon said Hurts' maturity stands out. "He's an old head to me," Sermon said. "He listens to a lot of old-school music. He makes a lot of jokes that you hear that my uncle would say." Mayfield was a fiery, vocal leader who would yell and jump around. Murray was more subdued, but had a swagger that his teammates latched onto. Hurts? He says: "I chill." "He's kept to himself, but he's still always working," Lamb said. "He's always either with film or he's trying to go get some routes in. He's definitely the most laid back guy on the team, if not top five."

Hurts feels his personality meshes well with Riley's, and he likes being paired with an aggressive, offensive-minded coach. "I think coach Riley has really good intentions," he said. "Really good intentions with really bad intentions." Hurts sees Riley as a players' coach and said Riley has made a special effort to build a connection with him. "Our relationship has really grown," Hurts said. "You kind of have to force it because of the short time I'm here and how much I really need to take in before we actually get into gameplay. It's a relationship I definitely appreciate. Definitely a different relationship from coaches I've had in the past. I think the relationship can take us a long way. I think it can take this team a long way." - AP College Football

  Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts is the fourth-most popular college football player on social media by measure of average engagements, according to a report from athlete marketing platform opendorse. Opendorse, which was founded by former Nebraska football players Blake Lawrence and Adi Kunalic, helps over 7,500 athletes share content from partners on social media. The company works with brands like Tide, FedEx and Wendys. Hurts ranks first in average engagements on Twitter in all of college football but is not in the top-25 on Instagram. Hurts, who has nearly 200,000 Twitter followers, played three seasons at Alabama before transferring to OU in January. The top three are: Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy and Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm. - Tulsa World

  08/09/19 - Tre NorwoodJr/2021, Oklahoma, 5-11, 184 (DS#12 CB) + More +

  Oklahoma defensive back Tre Norwood is out for the season with an undisclosed injury. Coach Lincoln Riley made the announcement Friday. Norwood started all 14 games last season and was the projected starter at nickel back this season. Riley said the junior will be missed because of his experience and versatility, including his play on special teams.

Last season, Norwood tied for fifth on the team with 58 tackles last season. He had an interception in the final minute of last season's Big 12 title game victory over Texas and five tackles in the College Football Playoff loss to Alabama. Riley said Brendan Radley-Hiles, Chanse Sylvie and Jeremiah Criddell all could fill the role. - AP College Football

  Oklahoma defensive back Tre Norwood was expected to be a big part of the Sooners' defensive revamping under new coordinator Alex Grinch. Now, Norwood could miss significant time after suffering an injury in practice this week. After Tuesday night's practice, Norwood was seen leaving the practice field on crutches. ESPN reported that Norwood suffered a knee injury and that his return for this season was in question.

A source close to Norwood told The Oklahoman that "it doesn't look good." The junior from Fort Smith, Arkansas, started 14 games last season. He played for much of the year as a cornerback but shifted to safety and nickelback late in the season. - The Oklahoman

  08/03/19 - Kennedy BrooksrSo/2022, Oklahoma, 5-10, 209 (DS#2 RB) + More +

  Oklahoma and football coach Lincoln Riley both offered statements Saturday after a student made abuse allegations public against running back Kennedy Brooks the night before. Mallory Jech on Friday identified herself as an alleged victim of mental and physical abuse by Brooks, who was cleared by OU's Title IX office in an investigation nearly one month ago and has been since reinstated. He participated in Saturday's first preseason practice. Twenty minutes before the conclusion of that workout, OU released this statement:

"OU has been made aware of social media posts in reference to a recent Title IX investigation. Title IX reports and investigations are confidential in order to protect the privacy of both the individual reporter and the respondent involved in the investigation. University policy is to conduct investigations involving student athletes independent of OU Athletics. At no time does the Office of Institutional Equity engage the Athletics Department in the evaluation of evidence during or following an investigation. - Norman Transcript
