Big 12 Media Days Recap
Jordan King - July 17, 2019 10:18 am
During the first part of his press conference yesterday, OSU coach Mike Gundy reiterated what had been the buzz around Stillwater this offseason – that the head coach is rejuvenated for the year.
“I’m more excited and looking forward to a season than I ever have been before in a long, long time,” Gundy said. “So I just can’t wait to get started.”
Gundy was asked about the quarterback situation and he says neither has won the job yet, but he will name one once that happens. He also threw out the possibility of having a two-quarterback system with Dru Brown and Spencer Sanders.
Triple Play’s Robert Allen caught up with Biletnikoff finalist Tylan Wallace as soon as the players arrived at AT&T and here’s the phenomenal wideout didn’t seem too concerned about who will be under center this year.
“Both guys are really looking good right now,” Wallace said. “They know the defenses, like reading defenses. They both know the offense real well.”
Even though Oklahoma State wasn’t present Tuesday didn’t mean they were still part of the buzz at AT&T Stadium. Fox Sports football analyst Joel Klatt said that he thinks the Big 12 has positioned itself to be one of the best conferences in the country in terms of skill positions.
Klatt also called OSU running back Chuba Hubbard one of the two most exciting players who fans still haven’t seen the best of heading into 2019 and said he thinks OSU under coach Mike Gundy will be “right there” at some point in conversation in the conference.
Even though OU and OSU warranted conversation despite not being there on day two, the chatter yesterday was dominated by talk of Texas Longhorn football.
From Tom Herman talking about the Terry Bradshaw comments to Sam Elingher being surrounded by a media mob, the Longhorn soundbites were flying yesterday at Jerry’s World.
Triple Play’s Robert Allen caught up with Texas safety Brandon Jones to talk about the upcoming season. Jones talked about how he is 0-3 against OSU during his time in Austin, though he admitted each game is big and they will take it one game at a time.
Texas and OSU are on a collision course through non-conference to meet up with both teams hoping to get the best start possible in conference play. That game is September 21 in Austin.
OSU Football Recruiting
Speaking of news regarding Cowboy football in the future, but how about some more good recruiting news.
Bixby skill player and slot receiver Brennan Presley announced on his Twitter account on Monday evening that he will be heading to Stillwater once his ultra-successful high school career has ended.
Presley fills the void left from the scholarship the Pokes pulled from Myles Price after the slot receiver took an official visit to Texas Tech after committing to OSU.
Presley also coming off a weekend when he turned himself into a Twitter sensation with an unbelievable Odell Beckham Jr-esque catch at a 7-on-7 tournament.
