“You look at the guys he's coached before, guys like Case Keenum, Geno Smith and Brandon Weeden and the things he's helped them do, and you can't help but be impressed,” Hansen said shortly after receiving the offer from A&M.

His dad, Dusty, played baseball at OU in the 1990s, and Manning said there are plenty of other reasons the Sooners are in the mix.

“He really thinks a lot of the staff there at OU, especially Josh Heupel, and the direction they're headed and the changes they've made to what they're doing.”

Hansen has been hampered lately by a lower-back strain that he suffered during basketball season but is throwing again and could be fully cleared by early next week, Manning said.

Hansen has been throwing to Santa Fe receivers at least three days a week when the weather allows.

“His heavy lifting was put on hold for awhile but it was just a small hurdle through the winter,” Manning said. “If there's a time for something like that to happen, it's around this time.”
