YEAR/PO­SI­TION/SCHOOL: Junior, QB, Ok­la­homa

BIO: First-round Ma­jor League Base­ball pick by the Oak­land Ath­let­ics chose to re­turn to cam­pus and play foot­ball. Started his col­lege foot­ball ca­reer at Texas A&M be­fore trans­fer­ring. Backed up Heis­man win­ner Baker May­field last year.

KEY STATS: Passed for 4,053 yards and 40 touch­downs with just seven in­ter­cep­tions; rushed for 892 yards and 11 scores. His 205.7 passer rat­ing would be the best in FBS his­tory.

THE SKINNY: Ac­tu­ally had a bet­ter sea­son than May­field’s se­nior cam­paign. He added a dy­namic rush­ing el­e­ment at quar­ter­back to coach Lin­coln Ri­ley’s of­fense, and teams have not been able to ac­count for his speed. He shook off a rough start against Texas Tech to have one of his best games. Avenged reg­u­lar-sea­son loss to Texas in the Big 12 cham­pi­onship game. Con­stantly de­liv­ered in clutch sit­u­a­tions when Ok­la­homa’s de­fense couldn’t give him a cush­ion.
