Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy was also expected to participate in Monday’s Scott Verplank Foundation Invitational, but he didn’t make it.
His brother, OU running backs coach Cale Gundy, did play Monday, though, joining the Stoops brothers and former star quarterback Sam Bradford — now with the St. Louis Rams — as Sooner representatives at Oak Tree National on Monday.
Before the event, Gundy spoke about his pair of talented newcomers, freshmen running backs Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine, who are on campus and going through summer workouts with the team.
“They’re talented,” Gundy said. “Very talented. It’s the learning process of it. They all come here and they’re fast and can jump and do all that.
“But it’s everything up here. It’s physically and mentally adapting to college football so they’re able to do everything. This, I believe, is going to help them kind of speed up their learning process.”
NORMAN PD RELEASE PARKER ARREST REPORT
According to Steven Parker’s arrest report, the Oklahoma freshman safety was found by police passed out near a puddle of vomit next to the driver’s side door of a car in a parking lot at Eufaula Street and Webster Avenue early Sunday morning.
When the officer approached, Parker woke up but immediately upon standing fell over backward, the report said. Parker admitted to drinking vodka, was sweating and his speech was slurred.
Parker was arrested on a complaint of public intoxication and booked into Cleveland County jail just after 3 a.m. Sunday. He was released about seven hours later.
Before he was booked, Parker was taken to Norman Regional Hospital for evaluation.
Parker apologized for the incident through Twitter on Sunday.
“Sorry to everybody who trusted in me,” Parker posted. “I will bounce back from this and be somebody who is much better. Mistakes happen, but that’s no excuse.”
