In only a few days, Oklahoma has lost 3 Linebackers to the transfer portal.
Ryan Jones, Levi Draper, and Mark Jackson all entered the transfer portal. At this point, the sooners are down to nine scholarship linebackers and two of them (Shane Whittier and Brynden Walker) are 2020 signees (per Jason Jersey). Needless to say, the Sooners are light on linebackers.
While this definitely doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy if you’re a Sooners fan, it’s not the end of the world. This frees up some scholarships for potential Juco players or other transfers. This could end up being a good thing if the Sooners land players hand picked by Grinch for his own system. With the off season just starting I think the Sooners have time to fill these gaps. We’ll do our best to keep you updated.
