College Football News Preview 2020: Top Oklahoma Sooners Players
Best Oklahoma Sooners Offensive Player
C Creed Humphrey, Jr.
Throw this into the “for now” category. The hope is for Spencer Rattler to rise up into the next great Oklahoma quarterback early on, a few of the wide receivers are good enough to be in the Best Player category, and several receivers are fantastic. And RB Kennedy Brooks, not only might be the top offensive player early on, but he could be the most valuable considering the lack of proven running back depth.
Humphrey, though, is the rock of what should be one of the nation’s best offensive lines. The 6-5, 307-pound junior will be in the mix for every possible all-star center honor and should be an early draft pick whenever he’s ready to get out. A great recruit, he’s been able to play up to the hype and more with his consistency and brilliant pass protection skills.

Best Oklahoma Sooners Defensive Player
S Delarrin Turner-Yell, Jr.
Ronnie Perkins would be here, but at the moment he’s expected to miss the first five games. Like the offensive side, several players could be in this spot – watch out for DE Jalen Redmond, and one of the linebackers will step up in place of Kenneth Murray, but Turner-Yell should be an All-Big 12 statistical superstar.
The 5-10, 193-pound junior came up with 75 tackles with 5.5 tackles for loss as a steady all-around producer before getting knocked out late in the year with a broken collarbone.
