After helping his team secure a 55-20 victory over the Florida Gators in the Cotton Bowl, Oklahoma Sooners center Creed Humphrey has declared for the NFL Draft. He’s the second OU player to declare thus far, joining fellow Oklahoma native Tre Brown.

After redshirting in 2017, Humphrey started at center in 37 of his 39 career games, earning First Team All-Big 12 recognition twice and being named the 2020 Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year in the process. Additionally, the Shawnee native was a member of the 2018 Joe Moore Award-winning offensive line alongside four guys who are currently in the NFL.

In spite of the OU OL’s up-and-down 2020 season, Humphrey was a pretty good candidate to enter the draft prior to the Cotton Bowl. After his group paved the way for 435 rushing yards against the Gators, that decision became a bit easier, as he’s now striking while the iron is hot.

Creed’s personality off the field (particulalry on Twitter) and toughness on the field have endeared him to the OU fan base, and I speak for everyone in wishing him the best of luck at the next level. There’s no doubt that he’ll keep representing his alma mater to the best of his ability, and that ceiling is pretty high.
