Darlington, who committed to the Sooners in June, isn’t only a standout on the field but in the classroom as well.

The last time he got a B in a class was in elementary school and he’s got a chance to be the valedictorian of his class.

His dad, Rick, is his high school coach and his mom, Shelly, was an OU cheerleader in the 1980s.

With Ben Habern entering his junior season at center, having started 24 games there over the last two years, Darlington figures to have another year to develop after arriving in Norman.
