Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Creed Humphey named Walter Camp Preseason All-American, four Sooners taken in MLB draft, and more!

Also, the OU golf team added a quality grad transfer this week.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 07 Big 12 Championship Game

Happy Friday, friends and fans!

Oklahoma Sooners redshirt junior center Creed Humphrey was named a 2020 Preseason First Team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation on Thursday. Entering his third year as a starter, you can expect to see this talented lineman’s name among most major award watch lists.

In 2019, Humphrey received Second-Team All-American honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation, the Associated Press, the Football Writers Association of America and Sporting News. He also finished the year as one of three finalists for the Rimington Award — presented annually to the nation’s top center.

For a program with OU’s prolific pedigree along the offensive line, the Shawnee native is regarded as one of the very best to come through Norman in quite some time. As the leader of a unit that returns its entire starting lineup this upcoming season, the stage is set for Humphrey to have an all-time great campaign, both with his team as well as individually.

Now onto this week’s Friday edition of Hot Links! Skip Johnson’s ball players shine in the draft, Sooner Golf gets richer with a quality grad transfer, Myles Garrett working on a huge deal with the Browns and more!

OU Links

  • While replacing Kenneth Murray won’t be easy, Oklahoma’s linebacker room actually features quite a bit of talent and experience along with the potential for some serious growth, writes SI Sooners’ John Hoover.
  • OU men’s golf welcomes even more talent to its already loaded roster with the addition of UNC Greensboro graduate transfer Jonathan Brightwell. The former Spartan was the nation’s No. 13 collegiate golfer in the 2019-20 Golfstat rankings.

Around the Sports World

  • Former Wake Forest Demon Deacons WR Matt James has been named the next Bachelor. ABC tried reaching me first, but I had to respectfully decline due to a scheduling conflict. What, you don’t believe me? Okay, I see how it is. Some friends you are. No, no I’m good. Anyway, congrats Matt.
