OUTV Sports’ Haley Hughey spoke to QB Baker Mayfield and WR Sterling Shepard about each other’s role on the team. The pair spoke highly of one another, showing a mutual admiration.
QB Baker Mayfield spoke about WR Sterling Shepard as the no. 1 wide receiver in the county, “it’s a new year and a new Shepard,” Mayfield said.
He continued on to say he would be throwing to Shepard no matter who was covering the senior wide receiver.
Shepard said he thinks his quarterback is the no.1 QB in the country, and he is his brother.
The Sooners fell to Clemson for the second post-season bowl game in a row. Oklahoma faltered in the second half and was shutout while Clemson was fired up.
Zack Sanchez has decided to declare for the 2016 NFL Draft and seniors Charles Tapper, Devonte Bond, Eric Striker among others finished their final season with Oklahoma.
Sooners seem eager to get back to work, as shown in tweets by Joe Mixon and other players.
