Oklahoma quickly building their brand on transfer QBs.  Will Hurts win a Heisman and nothing more at Oklahoma?

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

I think Trevor Lawrence and Tua are you best 2 candidates for the Heisman.  Hurts is a good QB, but Texas is coming back and I don’t know if he’s going to have the passing skills to run that offense.  It’s a good move for Hurts.  Licoln Riley should be able to improve his passing.

It’s a tricky think to get stuck in a cycle of relying on transfers and not recruiting and developing QB’s.  That sends a message to recruits to look elsewhere.

That seems like it could be a good fit for him. I hope he does well.

Tate Martell heading to Miami as well.  He’ll fit right in.

Supposedly Lincoln Riley promised his 5* QB recruit for no transfers.  Seems he’s cool with it since Jalen only has 1 year to play but still playing with fire here.

To be clear I still think it’s a very smart move for Hurts and OU.
