Rodney Anderson suffered (6-0, 220) a leg damage in a Tennessee diversion final season. The redshirt beginner joins visitor Abdul Adams (6-0, 205) in a backfield.

“Abdul has unequivocally been great. He looks super, he’s got good quickness, he’s strong, unequivocally splendid immature male and fits right in with that crew,” OU manager Bob Stoops said. “He and Rodney, Rodney Anderson has looked unequivocally good.
