Oklahoma spring game preview: 5 things to watch

Backup quarterbacks

It’s Baker Mayfield’s team, we all know that.

But we know Mayfield won’t play all of the Oklahoma spring game. So how does Kyler Murray look? He’s been bouncing back and forth between spring ball and the baseball team, so it will be interesting to see his grasp on he playbook and how comfortable he seems in the pocket. Also, he hasn’t played since his time at Teas A&M in 2015, where he saw action in 8 games with 3 starts, so he’ll likely have plenty of rust to knock off. But Murray was a 5-star prospect coming out of high school, so expectations should naturally be high.

Then, there’s sophomore Austin Kendall, who was one of Lincoln Riley’s big gets out of North Carolina, who enters his sophomore season. He seems to be a bit of a forgotten man because of the extra year of eligibility given to Baker Mayfield, but he was a stud recruit and, if I were a betting man, will be the starting quarterback next fall. He played in two games last year against UL-Monroe and late against Kansas, but anytime you can get another look into possibly your future under center, it’s fun for the fan base.
