When we’re able to get some inside reports about practices we will try to bring you information. Obviously we’re limited in what we can say because we wouldn’t divulge anything that would adversely affect the program in any way. We are fans too. However we know fans, like us, just want some information to make them feel close to their favorite team. In our estimation passing a few notes on to OU fans only helps our program by increasing the sense of interest and excitement that we all share for Oklahoma football.
Yesterdays practice was iced out so most of the players weren’t able to make it in. However the young guys that could walk from the dorms did make it and they ran some 7-on-7.
Earlier this week Eric Striker and others praised KJ Young’s play in the bowl practices. In fact according to ESPN Striker said: “Man, K.J.’s got stick ‘ems, he’s got some hands. Good hands, good routes, too. He doesn’t drop the ball. K.J. has been doing it all season so it’s not a surprise.”
Well Eric was right because KJ killed in 7-on-7 yesterday…he looked GREAT! According to our source he was the young player that really stood out.
OU fans might recall that KJ Young was an under the radar WR that OU picked up at the very end of the last years recruiting class. In fact KJ was a 2 star by corporate recruiting sites up until Oklahoma got involved. He was then bumped to a 3 star.
It’s still early but it sounds like KJ is starting to really shine! And it just so happens that KJ Young wears the number 85…the number of our very own Ryan Broyles.
Oklahoma will resume bowl practice on Monday.
