  09/17/20 - Mikey HendersonFr/2024, Oklahoma, 6-1, 245 (DS#1 FB) + More +

  Oklahoma has lofty hopes for Mikey Henderson, especially after a promising debut last Saturday. The true freshman had some nerves entering his first Sooners appearance, fellow H-Back Jeremiah Hall said, but nothing about Henderson's performance suggested it. The rookie Sooner H-Back, who saw an uptick in usage in the Sooners' season opener, caught four passes for 37 yards against Missouri State. One, in particular, he juked past one defender and dragged another for a first down. The game was well out of reach for the Bears, but the effort he showed in the Sooners' 48-0 win was appreciated by his veteran teammate. "Mikey has been learning pretty quickly, and he'll definitely be great," Hall said on Tuesday. "...I know he was a little bit nervous as anybody else would. But he went out there. He did his job. He worked hard, and I'm proud of him. "He's the next one up." - Norman Transcript

  09/16/20 - Marvin MimsFr/2024, Oklahoma, 5-11, 177 (DS#14 WR) + More +

  Spencer Rattler was the star of OU's season-opening 48-0 blowout of Missouri State on Saturday. There's zero doubt about that. But Rattler wasn't the only Sooners offensive youngster to emerge as a star in the win. Two other freshmen - running back Seth McGowan and wide receiver Marvin Mims - certainly had the looks of players who will be making their marks for OU over the next few years. "They both did some good things," Sooners coach Lincoln Riley said. "They're two pretty explosive kids for their age. Both kids physically are in a pretty good place and have picked stuff up well. They both have some home-run ability." Though McGowan scored first - his 1-yard touchdown run ended OU's first drive - it was Mims that first showed off his big-play ability.

Mims danced through a group of defenders on his first punt return, then found some wide-open space. The return wound up being only 17 yards after a collision with a teammate slowed Mims' momentum, allowing a Missouri State defender to make a tackle he might not have made otherwise. But it gave OU fans a quick indication of Mims explosiveness. The Sooners had only three punt returns 17 or more yards last season. Mims had three in the first quarter of Saturday's game. "He was a pretty polished kid coming out of high school," Sooners outside receivers coach Dennis Simmons said recently of Mims. "He's stepped into a room with an opportunity with a sense of confidence and understanding that, 'I'm not just happy to be here but I belong here." - Daily Oklahoman

  OU quarterback Spencer Rattler's first touchdown of the night might have been worth - at least some of - the price of Saturday's pay-per-view broadcast. Rattler led OU on a quick touchdown drive but running back Seth McGowan scored from the 1-yard line to finish the team's first series against Missouri State. Rattler followed up OU's opening drive with a dime to true freshman Marvin Mims on the first play of its second series. Mims, a speedy receiver from Frisco, Texas, caught the pass in stride to get his first career touchdown reception on a 58-yard pass. Rattler went on to complete 14-of-17 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns. His quarterback rating? 303.3. - Norman Transcript

  True freshman running back Seth McGowan had the honors of scoring OU's first touchdown of the night - and the Sooners' 2020 season. McGowan, who has replaced Jalen Hurts as the new No. 1 jersey in OU's backfield, punched in a score at the goal line to give the Sooners a 7-0 lead with 11:24 left in the first quarter. McGowan and Marcus Major were OU's only available scholarship running backs with Pledger not on the sideline and Rhamondre Stevenson serving a suspension. - Norman Transcript

  Big 12 teams posted the top three passing totals of the weekend in the Football Bowl Subdivision, highlighted by Spencer Rattler's sensational debut and Sam Ehlinger's career night. Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech were the only FBS teams with over 400 yards through the air. They combined for 1,395, completing 97 of 129 attempts (75%) with 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions. OU's Rattler hit on 14 of 17 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns in just two quarters against FCS Missouri State. Top backup Tanner Mordecai also was 14 for 17, and the Sooners finished 30 of 36 for 484 yards with five TDs and an interception in the 48-0 win. - AP College Football

  Spencer Rattler passed for 290 yards and four touchdowns in his first start and No. 5 Oklahoma rolled past Missouri State 48-0 on Saturday night. Rattler, the highly touted redshirt freshman from Phoenix, only played the first two quarters and helped the Sooners take a 41-0 lead. Rattler nearly didn't the chance to make his long-awaited splash. According to a report in the Springfield News-Leader, Missouri State president Clif Smart told the school's board of governors that the game had been in jeopardy because of Oklahoma's positive COVID-19 cases. Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley confirmed it after the game. "It hung in the balance for a little bit, but we were able to do it," he said. "Thankfully we were able to."

Rattler took advantage of the opportunity and looked like a seasoned veteran. He completed 14 of 17 passes and had a 303.3 passer efficiency rating - the third-best single-game mark in school history. "I feel like I've earned a lot of trust from my guys on the team," he said. "Being the quarterback, you have to have that assertive leadership and bring certain qualities to you, and I feel like I'm still working on that, but doing a pretty good job with it." Rattler left an impression on Missouri State coach Bobby Petrino, who coached Heisman winner Lamar Jackson at Louisville in 2016. "I think his presence in the pocket, being able to find the open receiver - he's got a great quick release and can make all the different throws," Petrino said. The Sooners led 31-0 at the end of the first quarter and outgained the Bears 236 yards to 1. It was the first time since 2008 that Oklahoma scored at least 31 points in a first quarter and the sixth time in school history. - Oklahoma/AP College Football

  09/07/20 - Ronnie PerkinsJr/2022, Oklahoma, 6-3, 247 (DS#6 DE) + More +

  A few weeks after OU lost its top returning running back to an opt-out decision, the Sooners appear to have lost one of their top returning pass-rushers. Defensive tackle Jalen Redmond finalized a decision to opt out over the weekend, according to a report from OUInsider. While there is a fair amount of depth at Redmond's spot on the interior of the defensive line, the decision leaves the Sooners without a proven pass-rusher early in the season. Though he only started four games a year ago, Redmond led the Sooners with 6.5 sacks and was third on the team with 11 tackles for loss.

Defensive end Ronnie Perkins, who was second on the team with six sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss a year ago, is expected to serve a suspension of at least four games to start the season in a continuation of the suspension that cost Perkins, running back Rhamondre Stevenson and wide receiver Trejan Bridges the opportunity to play in the Peach Bowl against LSU. The trio reportedly tested positive for marijuana in the lead-up to the bowl game, leading to an NCAA-mandated suspension. - Daily Oklahoman

  09/05/20 - Obi ObialorSr/2021, Oklahoma, 6-2, 218 (DS#102 WR) + More +

  With his newfound extra year of eligibility, Obialo decided to transfer. He said OU assistant coach Cale Gundy led the charge on his recruitment, which resulted in his February commitment to OU. Obialo said he's worked at both inside and outside receiver. He's also developed a good relationship with Sooners starting quarterback Spencer Rattler, despite his limited time around the team. "We've been throwing over the summer and stuff like that, just getting our reps in practice," Obialo said. "We're just ready to put it on the field against a different opponent." He will have plenty of competition for catches, however, in OU's offense.

The Sooners return junior receiver Charleston Rambo, the 2019 team's second-leading receiver with 743 yards on 43 catches. OU also brings back its sophomore trio of Trejan Bridges, Jadon Haselwood and Theo Wease, all three of whom were five-star recruits coming out of high school. Obialo still has ample value as a veteran in an offense that lacks them. "Obi's a guy that, just the maturity and the physicality and the toughness that he brings to the offense is something that we definitely needed," Beamer said. "Really excited about his potential." - Norman Transcript

  Rattler was one of the focuses for the third season of the Netflix documentary series, "QB1: Beyond the Lights." The show, led by "Friday Night Lights" director Peter Berg, has followed three high school senior quarterbacks for each of its three seasons. Former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm was one of three subjects of the first season. Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields was featured in the second season. Rattler, along with Maryland's Lance LeGendre and Kentucky's Nik Scalzo, was on the third season, which was released last year. Rattler's 10-episode season is still available on the streaming service. - Norman Transcript

  OU is finding leaders in the trenches, including one that just arrived to Norman in January. OU defensive line coach Calvin Thibodeaux said senior LaRon Stokes has been a "quiet leader" and a reliable presence through fall camp. Stokes started 10 games last season for the Sooners, picking up 15 tackles and 4.5 tackles for loss. The other leader in the unit is newcomer Perrion Winfrey. "Perrion Winfrey, when everything's on, he can do it," Thibodeaux said during a Wednesday Zoom video conference with media. "He can do it at a really high level." Winfrey, who was the 2020 class' No. 1-rated junior college prospect by 247Sports.com and ESPN, enrolled at OU during the spring via Iowa Western Community College. He chose the Sooners over offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU and Texas. The junior defensive lineman posted promising numbers at the junior-college level over the past two years, including 55 tackles, 23 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. - Norman Transcript

  Spencer Rattler is the next man up in the Oklahoma quarterback factory. Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley named Rattler the starter over Tanner Mordecai on Tuesday heading into the fifth-ranked Sooners' opener Sept. 12 against Missouri State. Rattler, a redshirt freshman, is the Big 12’s Preseason Newcomer of the Year. He was the consensus No. 1 quarterback nationally in the 2019 recruiting class. The pressure on Rattler will be great. Under Riley, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray have won the Heisman Trophy and Jalen Hurts was the runner-up last season. Riley believes Rattler has the tools to handle it. "I think his confidence and belief in himself and his teammates - I think that's the thing that stands about him right now," Riley said. "He's never been afraid of the moment, which for young players - that's a key thing, and I don't know that that's really coached. That's something that guys either have or they don't at a young age." - AP College Football

He notched two 100-yard rushing games last year, turning in a season-best total of 109 rushing yards and a touchdown on five carries at Kansas.
