But what should excite OU fans as much as their talents, is their attitudes and willingness already to embrace each other as teammates, even though they’ll be battling for carries one day in the Sooner backfield.
Last month, while speaking at the Sooner Caravan in Dallas, coach Bob Stoops lauded Brown and Murray for their friendship off the field despite competing for playing time in a crowded running back rotation that might cause others in the same situation to transfer away.
So far, despite growing up on opposite coastlines, it seems Clay and Finch are on track to developing a similar camaraderie.
"When we first talked, we just clicked. Like we were brothers,” Finch said. "I envision us having the same type of relationship Chris and DeMarco have.
"We know together we have a chance to do something special at Oklahoma.”
