Tulsa redshirt junior TE Payton Prince moved to defensive tackle this spring.

Prince did not log a catch during either of his two active seasons with the Golden Hurricanes. The 6-foot-4, 252-pounder will join the interior defensive line fray with Kolton Shindelar, Shemarr Robinson, Jimmy Nelson, Tyarise Stevenson and Johnnie Williams as Tulsa looks to rebuild at defensive tackle following Hayden Carman and Jerry Uwaezuoke heading off into the sunset.

Tulsa HC Philip Montgomery said that "when you put the ball in [redshirt junior RB Ramadi Warren's] hands, he can be really special."

The Tulsa World's Kelly Hines singled out Warren as one of the Golden Hurricanes' top performers in spring practice. The real question, here, is whether he will qualify academically for the coming season -- he missed the 2016 campaign due to grade issues. Warren needs to pass 12 credit hours this summer in order to be eligible to play in 2017. "I hope we get him back. He’s working tremendously hard," Montgomery said. Assuming he qualifies in the classroom, Warren will be jostling for depth-chart position behind expected starter D'Angelo Brewer in August camp.

The Tulsa World's Kelly Hines wrote of the quarterback competition at Tulsa, "By spring’s end, neither [junior QB] Chad President nor [freshman QB] Luke Skipper emerged as a clearly defined favorite for the starting role."

Tulsa is working to find a Dane Evans replacement to run HC Philip Montgomery's lethal spread attack.. The 6-foot-3, 206-pound President has the edge in experience by degrees, having played in six games in 2015 and one in 2016 (before that campaign was derailed by a leg injury). However, he has attempted just five passes in his career. Hines passes along that Skipper looked a bit sharper than President during the team's spring game, but this issue will not be settled until August.

Tulsa redshirt junior RB Ramadi Warren is on track to become academically eligible for the fall.

Warren averaged 6.7 yards per carry and scored six touchdowns in 2015 before losing a year of eligibility to his schoolwork. He'll be in the mix behind projected starter D’Angelo Brewer if he passes the summer courses he needs to boost his GPA.

Jets signed Tulsa QB Dane Evans.

Evans (6’0/210) made 43 starts for the Golden Hurricane, managing a career 57.3% completion rate, 7.4 YPA, and 84:47 TD-to-INT ratio. A streaky and often erratic passer with a strong arm, Evans played in a simplistic one-read college offense that manufactured big plays off play action, and is significantly dissimilar from a pro-style attack. Evans is also short by NFL quarterback standards and ran a 5.03 forty before the draft. Still, the tools are there for Evans to make a run at a backup job, possibly after spending a year or two on a practice squad.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that teams are "excited about [Tulsa WR Keevan Lucas'] potential as a return specialist."

Lucas shored up a few of his Combine results via Friday's pro day. Notably, the Tulsa product bested both of his Combine jumps, hitting 37 inches on the vertical (an improvement of almost five inches) and 10-foot-3 on the broad jump (an improvement of four inches). Per Pauline, Lucas worked out individually with the Chiefs and sat down to meet with the Vikings. The Cardinals are another team the analyst forwards as a potential interested party. It should be noted that while NFL squads like his upside as a special teams return piece, Lucas has not actually returned a punt or a kick in a game since 2013.

Tulsa WR Keevan Lucas will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

Lucas posted an 81-1180-15 receiving line over 13 games this season and is an outstanding get for this all star game. Tulsa uses a wide open offense, so it will be worth watching Lucas' alignment and get off during practice week. We will be there to cover the action.

Tulsa junior RB D'Angelo Brewer rushed for 105 yards on 17 carries in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Tulsa's two-headed running back monster was at it again. Brewer sliced through Central Michigan for 105 yards to lead the Golden Hurricane on the ground, while backfield buddy James Flanders took 17 carries of his own and spun them into 100 yards and a touchdown. For his part, the 5-foot-9, 185-pound Brewer finishes up the 2016 campaign having rushed for 1,435 yards and seven touchdowns.

Tulsa senior WR Joshua Atkinson caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

A sign of how productive Tulsa's offense was this season -- during Monday's Miami Beach Bowl victory, the Golden Hurricane became the first team in FBS history to house a 3,000-yard passer (Dane Evans), two 1,000-yard wideouts (Atkinson and Keevan Lucas) and two 1,000-yard rushers (D'Angelo Brewer and James Flanders) in the same season. Impressive work all the way around. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 208-pound Atkinson finished his senior season with the Golden Hurricane having caught 78 passes for 1,058 yards and eight touchdowns.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 06:24:00 PM

Tulsa senior WR Keevan Lucas caught seven passes for 72 yards and three touchdowns in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Two of Lucas' three touchdown grabs came in the third quarter, as QB Dane Evans hit him from 28 and 11 yards out to help extend a 27-3 halftime advantage. That 11-yarder made the score 48-3. The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder was sidelined midway through the 2015 season with a torn patella tendon, but has done fantastic work to return from that serious injury. He played in all 13 of Tulsa's games this season, building a lovely 81-1180-15 receiving line along the way.

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 28-of-38 passes for 304 yards and five touchdowns in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Now that's how you wrap up your college career. Evans tossed a trio of touchdowns in the first half as the Golden Hurricane trotted out to a 27-3 halftime advantage, then kept his foot on pedal with another two scoring passes in the third quarter. The 6-foot-1, 218-pounder finishes his final season of collegiate play having thrown for 3,348 yards with a 32/12 TD/INT over the course of 13 games. He walks into the sunset holding a career 84/47 TD/INT ratio.

Central Michigan will play Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl on Monday.

Tulsa is currently an 11.5-point favorite. That makes sense, as Central Michigan has basically cratered since being gifted the September win over Oklahoma State. The Chips have lost four of five and haven't topped 24 points since mid-October despite starting a quarterback (Cooper Rush) who will be in an NFL camp next summer. Tulsa has no such offensive problems. Led by QB Dane Evans (3,044 yards passing, 27/12 TD/INT ratio), two 1,300-yard-plus RBs and WR Keevan Lucas (74 receptions 1,108 yards 12 TD), the Golden Hurricanes average 41 points and change per contest.

Tulsa redshirt senior RB James Flanders rushed for 197 yards and two touchdowns on 39 carries in Friday's 40-37 overtime win over Cincinnati.

Yet another brilliant effort by Flanders, who has now rushed for at least 160 yards in five of his last six games. The 5-foot-10, 203-pounder averaged a relatively modest 5.05 YPC, but accumulated his mega-yardage total on volume of carry. It was Flanders' four-yard touchdown run in overtime which propelled the Golden Hurricane to victory. Through 12 games, he has rushed for 1,529 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Tulsa junior RB D'Angelo Brewer rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 35-20 win over UCF.

Brewer scored on a two-yard run near the beginning of the second quarter and would loop back around for a little eight-yard touchdown scamper in the closing seconds of the third quarter. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound junior averaged 6.7 YPC and ripped off a long run of 41 yards in the victory. For the season as a whole, Brewer has rushed for 1,231 yards (5.4 YPC) and seven touchdowns across 10 games played. The Golden Hurricane will call it good on the regular season after next Friday's contest against Cincinnati. That one is looking like a relatively breezy opportunity at this point, as the Bearcats are hitting the end of the season having lost six of their last seven games. At 8-3, Tulsa is already guaranteed a bowl berth.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 12:21:00 PM

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 16-of-27 passes for 369 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-40 loss to Navy.

In a tight, offense-happy game -- Navy held a 28-27 lead after three quarters -- Evans wasn't quite able to lead his team over the hump. After the teams traded fourth-quarter scores, Evans' 22-yard touchdown pass to Chris Minter with 5:35 remaining would draw the Golden Hurricane to within 42-40. They subsequently opted to kickoff deep rather than attempt an onside kick. Big mistake. With Tulsa holding just one timeout, Navy would not give the ball back. For his part, the 6-foot-1, 218-pound Evans has thrown 12 of his 22 touchdown passes in the last four games.
