OU coach Bob Stoops announced on his weekly radio show Tuesday night that sophomore walk-on Patrick O’Hara has won the kicking competition.
O’Hara was 6-of-9 on field goals last season, 15-of-15 on PATs. Stoops said earlier Tuesday he had selected his kicker but wanted to talk to all four candidates before announcing it publicly.
Stoops said it won’t be a one-game audition.
“It’s (based) over the past couple of weeks,” Stoops said. “(O’Hara), in my eyes, overall has been more consistent. He needs to be given an opportunity to keep it and improve with it as opposed to some knee-jerk reaction and change it every kick.”
