Get used to seeing more and more of this out of players. You’re likely going to see a ton of players opt out during the coronavirus pandemic.

Given how much uncertainty there is surrounding the 2020 season, you really can’t blame players for not wanting to burn a year of eligibility for a chaotic season.

As for Brooks and Kennedy, he’s one of the best runners in the Big 10, and there’s no question at all that the Sooners will miss him.

However, Oklahoma is stacked with talent. Lincoln Riley’s roster is as legit as they come. They should still be just fine without Brooks.
