MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Jalen Hurts’ impact on the Oklahoma Sooners is already being felt.
On Wednesday, the Big 12 named the former Alabama quarterback “Newcomer of the Year”.
Oklahoma was also picked to win the Big 12 in the preseason media poll.
Hurts transferred from Alabama to Oklahoma as a graduate transfer this off season. He lost the starting job at Alabama to Tua Tagovailoa last year.
Hurts saw limited playing time in 2018, but helped the Crimson Tide win the SEC Championship game over Georgia after Tua went down with an injury.
