NCAA Football: Oklahoma Spring Game Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

We’re days away from the Sooners’ opener against UTEP, and i’d be lying if I said I wasn’t counting down the hours to kickoff.

While we’re prepping ourselves for Saturday, Lincoln Riley is prepping his team for Saturday as well. Yesterday he announced the redshirt list for this upcoming season - and the list shows no true surprises. It includes:

OL Adrian Ealy

OL Tyrese Robinson

OL Marquis Hayes

LB Levi Draper (shoulder injury)

RB Kennedy Brooks (shoulder injury)

QB Austin Kendall

DE/LB K'Jakyre Daley

DT Zacchaeus McKinney

DT Troy James

Lincoln Riley also mention that Creed Humphrey could possibly redshirt, as well.

Here’s the Tuesday edition of Hot Links!

While Hurricane Harvey might not have hit the University of Oklahoma, it is still making an impact on campus. Oklahoma Sooners defensive star Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, a Houston native, is one of the thousands effected by the storm as well as many others who attend the university. Okoronkwo and other players as well as members of the coaching staff have been able to make contact with their families despite the effect of Harvey.

  • Sophomore Austin Kendall was supposed to be the next heir to the quarterback throne in Norman, but that’s changed since Kyler Murray entered the fold. You can read Jack Shields’ article here.
  • Former Sooners’ lineman Gabe Ikard and the Cleveland Browns have parted ways. It was his second stint with Cleveland.
