It’s high noon...

Presley ready to match-up with Tulsa:

Brennan Presley was not recruited by the program in his hometown. The University of Tulsa will face Oklahoma State in Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday where Presley has a chance to launch his career. Bill Haisten writes about Presley’s journey.

Presley is 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds. With most prospects, that lack of size would be a legitimate concern. With Presley, though, it was obvious by his junior season that he was uncommonly gifted and fast, and that he had a major-college skill set.

The Bixby High School campus is only 20 miles south of TU’s football offices. After Presley’s 10th-grade season, everyone in the Tulsa County football universe knew that he was a rare talent.

Inexplicably, though, he was not recruited by the Golden Hurricane program. {Tulsa World}

Oklahoma State brings back three big playmakers for 2020:

This season, Tylan Wallace, Chuba Hubbard and Spencer Sanders will be back. The set of Triplets have a chance to do something really special Bill Haisten writes.

Now a third-year sophomore and OSU’s second-year starter at quarterback, Sanders is a former Texas high school player of the year. While occasionally gashing defenses with his speed, Sanders attempts to elevate his passing efficiency to the Weeden-Rudolph level. Sanders’ development is the No. 1 storyline at OSU.

Until a 2019 midseason knee injury, Wallace was among the very best of all college football receivers.

Barry Sanders bolted for the NFL after his 2,850-yard masterpiece in 1988. Hubbard stayed at OSU after having rushed for 2,094 yards last season.

On literally any touch of the football, Wallace and Hubbard are capable of significant yardage or a touchdown.{Tulsa World}
