TFB has been counting down the days to OU football with a spotlight on each member of the roster, spotlighting the player who corresponds with the days remaining. Today would have been 41 days until opening kickoff; now, it’s 34 days to go.
To avoid skipping players with numbers 41-35, TFB will be pushing out countdowns on double duty this week. For this week only, both numbers currently corresponding with the countdown (34-28) and those previously corresponding with the countdown (41-36) will be receiving a spotlight. The result will be that the countdown will be fully “caught up” next Sunday, August 1st.
The Path to Norman
Jake McCoy played high school football just up the road from Norman. Hailing from Edmond North, McCoy walked on with the Sooners in 2019 as a linebacker.
Career so Far
McCoy took a redshirt season in 2019.
Year: Redshirt Freshman
There is a lot of returning experience at the linebacker position, with guys like Caleb Kelly, Bryan Mead, DaShaun White, and Brian Asamoah all back for 2020. However, OU loves their walk-ons; hopefully, McCoy can find playing time with the Sooners.
