Junior-college defensive tackle signee Quincy Russell hasn’t arrived in Norman yet
NORMAN — When asked last week about junior-college transfer defensive tackle Quincy Russell, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops hesitated before answering.
Russell signed with Oklahoma in December — meaning Stoops shouldn’t be barred from talking about the three-star prospect — but he told reporters he’d stick to the statement he issued upon Russell’s signing.
Monday, when OU began classes for the spring semester, the reasoning behind Stoops’ hesitance became a little clearer. Russell apparently has yet to enroll at Oklahoma, according to a people search on the university’s website.
Rivals.com reported that Russell took a couple intercession cources at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, but is still expected to arrive in Norman soon.
Russell (6-foot-3, 300 pounds) originally signed with Texas out of high school, but was forced to go the junior-college route because of academic issues.
The day after Russell signed with Oklahoma, Stoops told reporters that he was a “huge difference maker” and that coaches were excited about him.
