Cousins was hit in the back of his shoulder after getting caught in the middle of a gang-related shooting. Neither Cousins nor anybody in his group had any ties to the gangs involved.
“He seems fine,” Kruger said. “I guess those things happen in the area that he’s grown up. It’s happened too frequently and obviously it’d never happened to him directly but he’s aware that it does happen in that area.
“I think he’s anxious to get on to school and get back to the routine.”
STOOPS ‘NOT PURSUING’ MAYFIELD APPEAL
Stoops said he didn’t know anything about the status of Baker Mayfield’s appeal to the NCAA for immediate eligibility.
“I’m not pursuing that, so I don’t see that changing,” Stoops said. “I don’t see them changing the rule.
“There’s an appeal, but what percentage that is, I have no idea. You have as good an idea as I do. I don’t know.”
Mayfield, a walk-on, transferred from Texas Tech after last season, and Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury did not release Mayfield to another Big 12 school.
He performed well in the spring game but without a successful appeal would not only have to sit out this season but lose a season of eligibility as well.
Mayfield started for much of the season at Tech, throwing for 2,315 yards and 12 touchdowns.
