  Oklahoma could sweep the Big 12 Athlete of the Year awards if things fall its way. The Sooners have two strong candidates in former quarterback Jalen Hurts and gymnast Maggie Nichols. The Big 12 presents a male and female award to be announced May 28. Hurts, a Heisman Trophy runner-up who was drafted No. 53 overall by the Philadelphia Eagles last month, led the nation in yards per pass attempt last season (11.3) and was an Associated Press third-team All-America selection. He spent one year at OU after transferring from Alabama. - Norman Transcript

  Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will wear the number he wore at Alabama and not the number he wore at Oklahoma on his NFL jersey. The second-round draft choice announced on Wednesday night that he would wear No. 2 for the Eagles. Hurts wore No. 2 during his three seasons at Alabama. He completed his college career at Oklahoma at 2019, when he finished No. 2 in the Heisman Trophy voting while wearing No. 1 on his Sooners jersey. Hurts also wore No. 2 while playing for Channelview High School in Channelview, Texas. The Eagles selected Hurts with the 53rd choice in the NFL Draft on April 24. Philadelphia has a player who wears No. 1 already on its roster - punter Cameron Johnston - but did not have a No. 2 until it was claimed by Hurts. - Birmingham News

  Before he was one of the more talked-about draft picks, Jalen Hurts had a fascinating grad-transfer recruitment. More than a year later, Nick Saban leant some insight into the process that landed Hurts in Oklahoma for a crucial senior season. Doing an interview with the website of the Philadelphia Eagles -- who drafted Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft -- Saban spoke about the three-team pursuit of the Alabama quarterback Saban said the plan was always to pursue a transfer after Hurts' third Alabama season if he was not the starter. Tua Tagovailoa, of course, had secured that job over the previous summer so Hurts was officially on the market after the 2018 season.

"And I remember him coming into me and saying (he) could go to Miami because the quarterback coach had gone to Miami as the offensive coordinator -- the quarterback coach here, Dan Enos," Saban said in the interview posted Sunday morning. "Mike Locksley got the head coaching job at Maryland. 'I could go to Maryland or I could go to Oklahoma.'" Locksley was the former Alabama offensive coordinator who had been on staff for Hurts' three Alabama seasons. Enos was the quarterbacks coach in Hurts' third season before leaving for Miami just days after Alabama's season ended with a national-championship game loss to Clemson. "I said 'Jalen, where do they have the best players?' because he felt more comfortable going where he knew these guys," Saban said. "And he said 'Well, I think they have the best players at Oklahoma.' I said we just played them, and they have some pretty good players on offense too." - Birmingham News

  Philadelphia Eagles fans seemed upset with team general manger Howie Roseman after he selected Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the NFL Draft on April 24. But when Roseman chose Southern Miss wide receiver Quez Watkins 147 picks later, the former Athens High School standout was happy to join Hurts in the Eagles' 2020 draft class. Watkins and Hurts had worked out together to prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine. "After I got drafted, he texted me," Watkins said. "It was like: 'Let's get to work.' That's really what we've been about before the Combine and stuff like that. Really been just trying to get to work. "It's really good that I'm with him. We started bonding a lot, started getting closer as the Combine and stuff came and then really we just got a connection, so we'll already have that connection and timing down."

Eagles fans objected to Hurts' selection in the second round because Philadelphia has an established quarterback in Carson Wentz. They would have preferred a rookie with an opportunity to start as the 53rd pick. Watkins said Hurts, who spent three seasons at Alabama before playing at Oklahoma in 2019, had qualities that Philadelphia fans would like. "He's a worker," Watkins said. "He's a competitor. He's not going to stop until he proves to everybody that he's the best. He's always determined. I've never seen a guy that put up 3, 400 yards a game and then come back and work out after the game, after putting up 66 points. Honestly, he's just really different. He's somebody that's going to work to get to that starting spot, work to get better." - Birmingham News

  When Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman selected Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the NFL Draft on Friday night, he suspected the team's fans might not approve of his choice. "I said, 'Hey guys, we did what we think is the right thing, but hold on. Hold on. The water's going to get a little rough here,'" Roseman said during an appearance on "Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team" on WIP-FM in Philadelphia. "But what I thought was people would see this kid in particular and what an asset he's been to football teams and the skill set he has and get excited about him because he's exciting. He's an exciting person. He's an exciting player. And he's someone that adds to the culture of your football team. He's an intense competitor. He's an intense worker.

"And so I did think there would be some discussion about what we could do instead at that pick, but I thought just based on all our experiences together and this player in particular that it wouldn't be like this. And I also thought just based on what we've done this offseason that we'd all talk about how much better the team is because I think the team is much better." At Alabama, Hurts played on teams that won two SEC championships and one CFP national championship and reached three straight national title games. The SEC Offensive Player of the Year as a freshman for the Crimson Tide, Hurts was the Heisman Trophy runner-up last season at Oklahoma as he led the Sooners to the Big 12 crown and a spot in the CFP as a transfer. The argument in Philadelphia, though, isn't about Hurts' qualifications. It's about his position on the field and in the draft. - Birmingham News

  People were curious how Jalen Hurts would adjust at Oklahoma following an unconventional career at Alabama. Now those curiosities will follow him to Philadelphia. The Eagles selected Hurts in the NFL Draft's second round at No. 53 overall Friday, making him the third former Oklahoma player taken this week. He'll go up against his former receiver, CeeDee Lamb, in the NFC East. Lamb was drafted by the Cowboys on Thursday. The Eagles are committed to quarterback Carson Wentz, but Hurts' versatility has opened interesting possibilities about how teams could use him. He's considered one of the best athletes at his position in the draft and has a strong leadership reputation dating back to his time at Alabama.

Hurts ranked first in the nation in yards per pass attempt at 11.3, just a hair behind the FBS record. But pinpoint passing remains one of his question marks. Staying in the pocket and making better decisions must be points of emphasis in the NFL, scouts say. Otherwise, he's a durable runner whose success rate is unquestioned. Hurts was part of 52 collegiate victories and went 38-4 as a starter. "I think he's just become way more of a factor in the throwing game," OU coach Lincoln Riley said. "I think people see that he improved a lot his junior year at Alabama when he wasn't the starter, and then I think this year was head and shoulders above that. I think he's come a long way in that regard, been able to do it and have success at different schools with different systems, which I think always bodes well." - Norman Transcript

  The comparisons to Lamar Jackson were inevitable. Once Jalen Hurts arrived at Oklahoma last year and started putting up video game numbers in head coach Lincoln Riley's offense, the race to put it all into context was on. Sooners predecessors Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray were obvious comps. Both won the Heisman Trophy and were selected with the No. 1 overall pick. LSU's Joe Burrow took the Heisman out of the picture with one of the most impressive college seasons of all time. He'll also almost certainly be the No. 1 pick when the Cincinnati Bengals go on the clock next month. And that's where Jackson creeps into the picture.

His career was longer and more consistent at Louisville, but there were many of the same doubts about him coming out of college. The athleticism was readily apparent - and nearly impossible to stop - but did he have the arm to stress NFL defenses? Could he make enough plays from the pocket to allow him to take full advantage of his speed, strength and vision in the running game? General managers and head coaches looking to replicate even a fraction of that success could well turn to Hurts as a developmental talent with a pedigree of great success. "I don't put a ceiling on my ability in terms of how great I can be," Hurts said last month at the NFL Scouting Combine. "I'm definitely a student of the game and been able to adjust to all the different coaches I've been a part of. For me, it's about steps every day and being the best I can be." - Herald Bulletin

  A few passes sailed out of reach, but they didn't concern Nick Basquine much. Out of more than 70 throws, former Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts was mostly on the mark. He and Basquine had rehearsed the workout for Oklahoma's Pro Day, but only briefly days earlier. What Basquine saw Wednesday was a much improved thrower, even since the end of last season. "Our first session throwing [was Sunday]. You could just see a lot of improvement," he said. "From his training and just the confidence he has in himself and his throwing mechanics, everything like that, you can see an improved player. Just how he's spinning the ball, the conviction how he's throwing the ball. "He was sure of himself, I think that was the big thing."

Hurts completed 70 percent of his passes last season at OU, his one and only campaign with the program after transferring from Alabama. He ranked ninth nationally in passing yards and second in passing efficiency. Questions about Hurts' accuracy, however, have followed him at both stops. He wanted this appearance - his first in Norman since the 2019-20 season ended - to help provide some answers. "I think it went well. Could've done some things better … You get nitpicky, you talk about certain ball placements, right? I want to hit the guy in the nose every time," Hurts said. "I want to allow him to put the biscuit in the basket, as the guy says on TV." - Norman Transcript

  Jalen Hurts' Senior Bowl helmet gives a snapshot of his college career, an OU on the right side and his old Alabama No. 2 on the left. Now, the quarterback who led two elite programs to the College Football Playoffs is trying to prove himself again, as an NFL prospect, back in the state where he began his college career. Hurts officially began his audition for NFL teams this week with practices and meetings ahead of Saturday's Senior Bowl. His biggest selling point: "I win." Indeed last season's Heisman Trophy runner-up did a lot of winning for both Oklahoma and the Crimson Tide, putting up big numbers both passing and rushing. But questions remain about his passing accuracy and consistency, leading to an uncertain draft status.

LSU Heisman winner Joe Burrow is the likely No. 1 overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, whose staff is coaching Hurts and the South team. Tua Tagovailoa, who replaced Hurts as the starter, is also regarded as a likely first-round draft pick despite recovering from hip surgery. Hurts' Senior Bowl teammate Justin Herbert of Oregon is projected as a high first-rounder. Then there's the 6-foot-1, 218-pound Hurts, who has a stellar resume but still some questions. "I don't want to get into comparisons," he said Tuesday before the teams' first practices. "That's kind of like the kiss of death. I try to be the best version of myself. Go out there and try to win, try to lead my guys, build relationships with my guys. Win ball games." - AP College Football

  2019 ASSOCIATED PRESS NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR: Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma,...When the AP All-Big 12 team and individual awards were announced Friday, it was the first time in Oklahoma's run of five consecutive conference titles that the league's top offensive player wasn't from the Sooners.
