Good afternoon, Sooner fans! While college basketball may be over for the season in Norman, it’s just been announced that the Oklahoma Sooners are in the field for the 2018 Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament.

Some of the top contenders in the field figure to be Virginia, Butler and Florida. The tournament is held in the Bahamas, so if you would like to support your Sooners and take a nice vacation at the same time, start planning your trip now through the link above.

Now for today’s Hot Links. Baker Mayfield is working out for a bunch of NFL teams this week, Trae Young was named to another All-American First Team, former Oklahoma QB Chris Robison gets suspended at FAU and more!

OU Links

  • Many NFL teams are searching for their next franchise QB, and several are getting extended looks with Baker Mayfield. This week, those looks are coming from the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets. It’s a QB-driven league, and Baker Mayfield is one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft for his precision, leadership and ability to create.
  • The National Association of Basketball Coaches named Trae Young a First Team All-American.
  • Is it possible that with Trae Young no longer in the fold as a Sooner going forward, Oklahoma basketball will actually be better off? John Hoover makes an interesting case and uses some good analogies.
  • Now that he’s officially entering the NBA Draft, which NBA teams are the best fits and the most realistic destinations for Trae Young?
  • It may not have resulted in a wildly successful year on the court for Oklahoma, but Berry Tramel thinks picking OU over the elite basketball programs on his list a year ago proved to be the right decision after all for Trae Young.
  • Doug Gottlieb doesn’t think Trae Young is worthy of being selected high in the NBA Draft, and he also thinks that whoever does draft Young “will lose their job.” I’m not necessarily saying that he’s right or wrong, but I tend to ignore Doug Gottlieb.
  • Former Oklahoma QB Chris Robison has been suspended by Lane Kiffin. It would make for a much more compelling season opener if Robison’s suspension is lifted in time for the game (it most likely will) and ends up being the starter come Sept. 1. I hope it shakes out that way...
