Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Charles Walker Reportedly Signing With Philadelphia Eagles

Unfortunately, Ahmad Thomas and Jordan Wade received some bad news.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Kansas John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Good afternoon, Sooner Nation!

Good news and bad news often come in pairs. I’ll give you the bad first:

On a much more positive note, Field Yates has reported that Charles Walker has found a new home in Philadelphia.

Remember — Mel Kiper said Walker would have been a first round pick if he hadn’t left Oklahoma early. The New Orleans signing apparently didn’t materialize, but now it’s about getting to work and proving his worth to the Eagles.

Without further ado:

OU Links:

  • 2018 cornerback Starrland Baldwin has released his list of top schools, and it comes as no surprise that the Sooners made the cut.

National Links:

  • With the amount of money that’s tied up in college football, it’s no surprise that politics enter the fold at times. Bill Snyder would like to see his son (and appointed coach-in-waiting) Sean take the reigns after he retires. Kansas State’s administration may have other plans.
  • It’s officially official: the new 72 hour winter signing period has been given final approval. Bob Stoops has been vocal about his support for the signing period in the past, and it makes sense — this should be a net positive his recruiting efforts.
  • Some sad news out of Arkansas: Rawleigh Williams III (second in rushing yards in the SEC last season) has decided to hang it up after sustaining a second neck injury in the Razorbacks’ spring game.

‘STICK TO SPORTS!’
