  As the University of Tulsa prepares for the 2022 season, a big lift to the offense will be the return of wide receiver Keylon Stokes. A grad student now, Stokes was the Golden Hurricane's leading receiver for three straight seasons (2018-20) but missed most of last year due to a torn quad injury suffered in the second game of the season. After a lot of hard work rehabbing from the injury, as well as overcoming a difficult personal issue, Stokes is back making plays in "fall camp" again and excited to get started for real. "It feels amazing, body feeling good, feeling real healthy, just ready to get back out there," Stokes said Wednesday at the Hurricane's media day.

The 5-foot-10, 198-pound native of Manvell, Texas, had topped the squad as a sophomore in 2018 with 41 catches for 575 yards, with two touchdowns, while also adding 15 rushes for 104 yards and two TDs, as well as kickoff return duties. "Obviously we missed him," said Golden Hurricane coach Philip Montgomery. "He's been one of our team captains for the last couple of years. He's one of those guys that we've been in a lot of battles with. You know exactly what you're going to get out of Keylon. "He's a very competitive young man, it doesn't matter what I ask him to do - 'Hey, run with the football, go block a defensive end, catch this ball, go across the middle.' He is a true throwback player in my opinion, because no matter what you ask him to do, he's going to do it at his utmost level, and he's always been successful in that. Also returning punts, returning kicks, he's done it all." - Tulsa World

  University of Tulsa football players have been working all summer in the weight room and studying film. On Wednesday morning, they finally got the chance to get out on the field and put it all to use. For starting quarterback Davis Brin, the official start of the 2022 season - the first day of practice - was long-anticipated, even if the players weren't even wearing full pads yet. That won't happen until Sunday. "It's amazing, I've been waiting for this day, been working all summer and it felt a little bit like Christmas Day for me today," Brin said. "Just being able to get back on the field, having offense, defense, everybody flying around, competing, I love it. It's always the most exciting time of the year, and we'll go and get better every day until Game 1." - Tulsa World

  When the University of Tulsa football team opens falls practice Wednesday morning, plenty of new faces will be on the field. This week, the Golden Hurricane announced 11 new transfers. Three additional players had already joined the team for spring practice, so a total of 14 new members will be on hand at Chapman Stadium. Coach Philip Montgomery is happy to add so many key players, particularly after losing eight others to the transfer portal, including six scholarship players who already had graduated but still had eligibility left.

"I know we've lost a few people, but that being said, I think we've got a lot of key guys back and we've been able to add a lot of new faces to our program," Montgomery said Thursday during his AAC media day appearance. "I think those guys have come into our program and really gelled with our guys, and so I think we're going to have a very competitive fall camp." Out of the 14 newcomers, 10 are on offense, including a total of five new offensive linemen and three wide receivers, with two defensive backs on defense. A few of the transfers have local ties. Receiver Isaiah Epps, a Jenks High School graduate who played four years at the University of Kentucky, graduated and transferred to TU in time to participate in spring ball. - Tulsa World

  2022 PRESEASON RAY GUY WATCHLIST: Lachlan Wilson - Tulsa,...Wilson (6-3, 194) played Australian Rules Football and did not begin playing American football until he came to Tulsa in the fall of 2019. After redshirting one season he took over as the punter in 2020 and averaged 42.9 yards on 42 punts … placed 14 inside the 20-yard line, 15 were fair caught and nine traveled 50 or more yards. Last season he punted 61 times for 2,787 yards. According to the calculator on our I-Phone that is an average of 45.69 per each (an achievement that so dumbfounded the Tulsa PR staff that it failed to do the math and list the average). Of them, 21 were inside the 20 and 23 for 50 or more yards. Played Australian Football for the Heidelberg Football Club … started for four years … played the full forward position, which required punting for goals and passing. - Tulsa Football

  With the Hurricane losing their top rusher and two of their top three receivers from last season, they'll be looking for quarterback Davis Brin to take a step forward in his fifth year with the program. Brin saw the first significant action of his career last season, passing for 3,254 yards and 18 touchdowns with a 59.3% completion rate. He also added 75 yards and a score on the ground. He'll need to improve from an efficiency standpoint, however. Brin's 16 interceptions were the most in the FBS last season, with his 132.6 passer rating being the third-worst among quarterbacks with at least 400 pass attempts. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  12/20/21 - Josh JohnsonSr/2022, Tulsa + More +

  Davis Brin threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns, and Tulsa closed the season with its fourth straight victory, beating Old Dominion 30-17 at the Myrtle Beach Bowl on Monday. Josh Johnson had eight catches for 129 yards including a 23-yard reception as the Golden Hurricane (7-6) won their second straight bowl game and third in their last four appearances. As effective as Tulsa's offense was, its defense was just as good. It held the Monarchs (6-7) of Conference USA to 135 yards through the first three quarters.

Things started strongly for Old Dominion, which won its last five of the regular season to qualify for the bowl, when LaMareon James opened the game in historic fashion with a 100-yard kick return for a touchdown. It was the first such return on the opening kick in its 11 seasons of football. But the Monarchs struggled to find an attack as Tulsa of the American Athletic Conference took control. It took until the fourth quarter for Old Dominion to post an offensive touchdown on Blake Watson's 2-yard run. By then, Tulsa was up 30-17 and not about to surrender the lead. Shamari Brooks ran for 107 yards and a 1-yard touchdown, Tulsa's answer that came less than two minutes after Old Dominion's kick return score. - Tulsa/AP College Football

  Davis Brin passed for 244 yards and a touchdown, three different ball carriers also scored and Tulsa fended off SMU 34-31 in a see-saw game to end the regular season on Saturday. Zack Long kicked field goals of 36 and 27 yards with the latter, coming with 4:06 left in the game, providing just enough to preserve the win. Tulsa (6-6, 5-3 American Athletic Conference) was in a 17-0 hole barely more than a quarter into the contest. The Golden Hurricane rallied with 31 unanswered points into a seemingly comfortable 31-17 lead with 13:30 to go. But SMU (6-4, 4-4) rallied with two fourth-quarter touchdowns, pulling within 34-31 when Tyler Levine crashed into the end zone from the 2 to cap a 69-yard drive with 2:50 left. Tulsa's LJ Wallace recovered the ensuing onside kick and the Golden Hurricane ran the clock. The loss was SMU's first at home this season. Tanner Mordecai, who threw for 298 yards and a touchdown for the Mustangs, set the conference single-season record with 39 TDs. - Tulsa/AP College Football
