Happy Tuesday, friends and fans!

247 Sports’ Clint Buckley recently rated former Oklahoma Sooners QB Tanner Mordecai as the No. 1 transfer quarterback this offseason. In December, the ex-OU signal caller announced his intention to join the SMU Mustangs.

Over the years, Lincoln Riley has had the privilege of coaching some of college football’s most captivating QB talent with the help of the NCAA Transfer Portal. Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts all kicked-off their careers elsewhere before ultimately signing off as Sooners. On the flip side, there have also been others who started out at Oklahoma only to wind up somewhere else, like Chris Robison at FAU, Austin Kendall at West Virginia, Chandler Morris at TCU and the aforementioned Mordecai now at SMU.

Basically, I see all of this as a net positive in OU’s favor. Whoever comes or goes, they’re usually much better off for their time in Norman. As the seasons go by and the results are produced, this program has clearly become college football’s premier factory for QB talent.

Now onto today’s Hot Links! Lon Kruger’s crew picks up steam as a potential top three seed, several class of ‘22 commits rise in the rankings, H-Town tells DC to boogie and more!

  • In other schedule news, OU’s game against Texas (which was supposed to be played last week but was postponed due to weather) will be played next week.
  • Sooners Wire’s Patrick Conn recently rated Oklahoma’s group of QB Spencer Rattler, RB Kennedy Brooks and WR Marvin Mims as the Big 12’s top offensive trio. Hard to argue with that.
  • 2022 OU four-star verbal commits Talyn Shettron, Kobie McKinzie and Jordan Hudson each recently received significant boosts to their Rivals prospect rankings. Currently, Oklahoma has the No. 4 class in the nation according to the recruiting service.
  • Winter workouts are winding down as spring camp draws ever closer at Oklahoma. Check out RB Kennedy Brooks and LB Caleb Kelly grinding it out with their teammates in this quick training montage. Neither of them played a down last season, but both Sooners bring heaps of talent and experience to the table. Man, I can hardly wait for football season. Boomer!
