 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Oklahoma's run game is critical to its Air Raid offense, however incongruent that might sound. Lincoln Riley has made it a priority since he arrived in Norman. Running backs are among football's most injured positions, and the Sooners haven't been exempt from that. Rodney Anderson, Trey Sermon, T.J. Pledger and Kennedy Brooks - practically every meaningful scholarship back the past three seasons - has missed time. This fall, OU must work around the potential absence of Rhamondre Stevenson, a productive junior-college transfer who was suspended for the Peach Bowl and could miss more time in 2020.

OU's running backs totaled 2,506 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2018. They ran for 435 fewer yards and 13 fewer touchdowns in 2019, when the run game focused more on Jalen Hurts at quarterback. Hurts ran for a team-high 1,487 yards and 20 touchdowns. He is a rare breed in terms of what he can handle physically, so don't expect that kind of offensive focus this season. With redshirt freshman Spencer Rattler likely to take over at quarterback, the Sooners won't have the option, and they can afford to lean on running backs again. - Norman Transcript
