Former Oklahoma defensive end and linebacker Albert Qualls died last week.
Qualls, 64, became a professor at Houston's Texas Southern University after his playing career ended.
Qualls made one of the most memorable plays of his college career in Oklahoma's 28-27 Bedlam victory in 1969, when he sacked OSU quarterback Bob Cutberth on a 2-point conversion play with 1:15 left.
He played at Oklahoma from 1969-71. His senior year, he started in the “Game of the Century” against Nebraska.
Funeral services for Qualls are scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday in the chapel at Houston's Duncan Mortuary.
IKARD NAMED TO THIRD PRESEASON ALL-AMERICA TEAM
Another week, another preseason All-America selection for Oklahoma senior center Gabe Ikard.
Ikard landed on CBSSports.com's 2013 Preseason All-America Team, released Monday morning.
The 6-foot-3, 298-pound Ikard was also named to the Sports Illustrated and ESPN.com preseason All-America teams.
Ikard was one of four Big 12 players on the CBSSports.com squad, which also included Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk, Baylor offensive guard Cyril Richardson and TCU cornerback Jason Verrett.
ANDREWS RANKED NO. 87 IN RIVALS100
Oklahoma wide receiver commitment Mark Andrews came in at No. 87 on the latest update of the 2014 Rivals100, which was released Monday morning.
Andrews (6-foot-6, 225 pounds) is the 13th-ranked wide receiver on the list.
Andrews committed to OU earlier this month over offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA and Wisconsin, among others.
Five-star running back Joe Mixon, from Oakley, Calif., is ranked 10th. He holds an Oklahoma offer and is scheduled to visit Norman in early October for the Sooners' home game against TCU.
Two prospects from the state of Oklahoma made the Rivals100: Jenks safety Steven Parker is ranked No. 46, and Norman North quarterback David Cornwell is at No. 70.
Parker remains uncommitted but has an OU offer. Cornwell committed to Alabama this summer.
SOURCES: NO TRUTH TO SLATER RUMORS
Did Oklahoma coaches clandestinely add a fourth junior-college transfer offensive lineman to its 2013 squad?
The Internet swarmed with rumors Monday morning that Pearce Slater, a 6-foot-8, 320-pound tackle from El Camino Community College in Torrance, Calif., was in Norman and set to join the Sooners in practice.
Slater committed to Kansas and sent his financial agreement papers in July, but has possibly already left the Jayhawks.
Slater is still listed on the Jayhawks' online roster, though.
Interestingly, a “Pearce Slater” from Hawthorne, Calif., shows up in an OU student search on the school's official website.
On Monday morning, though, a very reliable OU source told The Oklahoman, “He is not here,” and added, “I think he went to Kansas and already left.”
Later Monday, a second OU source confirmed that Pearce isn't joining the football team, nor is he enrolled at the university.
Oklahoma signed three junior-college offensive linemen in its 2013 recruiting class, with guard Dionte Savage and tackle Josiah St. John signing in February and guard Tony Feo joining the team this summer. All three are on campus, practicing and apparently making a strong push for immediate playing time.
