Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Jalen Hurts compares CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy

Hurts threw to each of these dudes during his college career, so who better to weigh in on the top two WR prospects in NFL Draft?

Happy Thursday, friends and fans!

Former Oklahoma Sooners QB Jalen Hurts sat down with the guys from SiriusXM NFL Radio during the combine, and he was asked to compare receivers CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy since he played with both of them during his career at Alabama and OU. Of course, it’s a classic ‘rat poison’ question that he wasn’t about to chow down on, but he did talk about each of their strengths as playmakers.

It should be a surprise to no one that he gave such a diplomatic answer. Although he wasn’t always the most jovial interview at Oklahoma, I’ll kind of miss watching Hurts’ mature demeanor and poise behind a mic. Hopefully some of those qualities rubbed off on guys like Spencer Rattler as the Sooners embark on a new QB era.

Now for today’s Hot Links! Oklahoma Baseball continues to roll, Lon Kruger’s team should still be inside the bubble, Joel ‘Do a 180’ Embiid will probably become a thing and more!

OU Links

  • OU Baseball (11-3) took care of business on Wednesday, dismantling Arkansas-Pine Bluff to the tune of 13-2. Check out all the highlights from inside L. Dale Mitchell Park:
  • Sooner Softball (16-4) was also in action in Norman yesterday, and after falling down early to Wichita State, Patty Gasso’s young squad surged ahead behind some timely blasts at the plate. Below you’ll find highlights from the Sooners’ big win on ‘Bark in the Park’ night.
  • CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm updated his Bracketology projections on Thursday, and he still has Oklahoma within the NCAA Tournament field of 64 as a 10-seed despite being stunned at home by Texas earlier in the week. One more win would certainly help the Sooners’ case and alleviate those stress levels as Selection Sunday draws nearer.
  • OU’s defensive line is going to look a lot different this fall with four seniors now out of the mix, including potential first-round draft pick Neville Gallimore. Fortunately, the cupboard isn’t bare, and the coaching duo of Calvin Thibodeaux and Jamar Cain seems the be just the pairing Oklahoma needs. The Norman Transcript’s Tyler Palmateer has more.
  • Shortly after 2021 DB Latrell McCutchin announced his de-commitment from Alabama, a buzz began to grow among Sooners fans that he could be flipping to Oklahoma. Recently, OU Insider RJ Young caught up with the Austin product to talk about his time in Norman and where he currently stands in his recruiting process.
  • OU women’s golf junior Kaitlin Milligan is taking her talents to Ireland from July 3-5 to represent the United States at the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup. Boomer!
  • Lincoln Riley wanted to share this Oklahoma sunset with Sooner Nation, and now I’m passing it along to you, too. Enjoy.
