This Season

RSJ has missed time this offseason and it doesn’t seem that he’ll be 100% to start the season. However, he has all the tools to be a solid safety for OU. He was listed at free safety behind Reggie Pearson and Key Lawrence on this week’s depth chart. Once he’s ready, he’ll work his way into the rotation for the Sooners’ secondary.
