Tulsa junior RB Corey Taylor II is fully recovered from his foot injury.

Taylor sufferred a season-ending foot fracture two games into his 2017 campaign. He is now fully healthy and scored two touchdowns in Tulsa's spring game. He is expected to play "in tandem" with Shamari Brooks. HC Philip Montgomery also stressed the importance of a good running game saying "we’ve always run the football well since I’ve been here." Taylor will likely play a big role in Tulsa's offense in 2018.

Tulsa senior QB Chad President (knee) is about three months away from full health.

President (6'3/206) suffered a torn ACL in a loss to Temple at November's end. He's understandably been held out of spring practice while rehabbing the surgically-repaired knee. On his current three-month timetable, he's dealing with a narrow margin of error if he's to be ready for the start of August camp. Luke Skipper has a considerable amount of time to take the reigns as starter as President is healing up, though neither quarterback did much to impress when given opportunity last season.

Tulsa sophomore RB Shamari Brooks (collarbone) is feeling "100 percent."

Brooks (5'9/185) broke his collarbone against SMU on Oct. 27th and missed the remainder of the 2017 season. Entering college, Brooks reportedly thought there was a good chance he could redshirt his freshman year. That wasn't the case as he racked up 687 yards and 10 touchdowns in nine games last season. Recording over 100 rushing yards in four games, Brooks impressed the coaching staff in 2017 and will likely play a big part in Tulsa's offense entering his sophomore campaign fully healthy.

Tulsa hired Division III Belhaven DC Carlton Buckels to serve as safeties coach.

Buckels has previously held jobs at the FBS level with LSU, New Mexico State, North Texas and Baylor. He was with the Bears as cornerbacks coach from 2011-16.

Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated picks Tulsa as his team that won two or fewer games that could make it to a bowl game in 2018.

Tulsa was one of the more disappointing squads in 2017, but Feldman notes that five of their ten losses last year were by five points or less. They also return eight starters on offense, and bring back their top two tacklers from the 2017 season. Outside of a trip to Texas the non-conference schedule isn't daunting, so if the defense can make enough stops and the offense takes the step forward Feldman predicts, they could easily be playing in a bowl game in 2018.

Baylor sophomore QB Zach Smith transferred to Tulsa.

Smith (6'4/208) made 10 starts while appearing in 19 games across his two seasons in Waco, throwing for 2,997 yards (55.7-percent completions) with a 21/15 TD/INT ratio for his career with the Bears. His move to Tulsa is a logically sound one. The Golden Hurricane saw its offense drop off precipitously this season due in large part to quarterbacking struggles and while Smith will have to sit out the 2018 season due to transfer regulations, the former four-star recruit should have every opportunity to win the starting job in a year. Add in the fact that Tulsa HC Phillip Montgomery was the one who initially offered Smith a scholarship back in 2014, when he was serving as Baylor's offensive coordinator, and it's a glove fit.

Baylor sophomore QB Zach Smith will transfer.

The former four-star recruit ended up starting 10 games over two seasons for Baylor, but he repeatedly squandered opportunities to run away with the job despite injuries to 2016-2017 starters Seth Russell and Anu Solomon. True freshman dual-threat Charlie Brewer turned out to be a better fit for Matt Rhule's new offense than Smith, a traditional pro-style pocket passer. Thus, Smith will look for a better opportunity. He'll sit out next season if he transfers within the FBS per NCAA rules, and then he'll have two years of eligibility left beginning in 2019.

Tulsa junior QB Chad President suffered a torn ACL in a loss to Temple on Saturday.

Because the Hurricane didn't qualify for a bowl game, President shouldn't miss any time. It's very likely he'll miss all of the spring football practices, however, which puts him behind in what will likely be a quarterback battle with Luke Skipper and/or any incoming transfers or recruits as Tulsa looks to rebound from their 2-10 season.

Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 255 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries in a 44-23 loss to Temple on Saturday.

Brewer (5'9/190) made it five straight 100-plus rushing yard games, and more impressively, back-to-back 1,400 yard seasons. Unfortunately, Brewer isn't able to make the Hurricane play defense. His score was a 14-yard scamper that briefly brought Tulsa back into the game at 31-20 with just over 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Brewer will likely be a day-three pick in the NFL Draft this spring.

Tulsa redshirt freshman QB Luke Skipper (concussion) will not play on Saturday against Temple.

Skipper suffered the concussion last Thursday in the loss to USF. Chad President will be the quarterback for the Hurricane on Saturday.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 03:41:00 PM

Tulsa HC Phil Mongtomgery says no decision has been made regarding redshirt freshman QB Luke Skipper's (concussion) availability for Saturday's game against Temple.

Montgomery confirmed that Skipper suffered a concussion Thursday at USF. Skipper was replaced by Chad President late in that game. President will get the nod against the Owls if Skipper is ruled out.

Tulsa redshirt freshman QB Luke Skipper suffered a possible concussion in Thursday's loss to South Florida.

Skipper was replaced by Chad President late in the game. Skipper will likely enter the concussion protocol over the next week. Tulsa (2-9) closes out its nightmare season next Saturday against Temple.

Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 163 yards on 34 carries in a 27-20 loss to South Florida on Thursday.

He also had three catches for 36 yards. It's the fourth straight game that Brewer has gone over 100 yards, and the sixth time this season that the star tailback has gone over 130 yards. It's just too bad that the rest of his team hasn't come close to matching what he's done for the Hurricane in 2017, otherwise Tulsa would be going to a bowl game this winter. Brewer and Tulsa will look to avoid a ten-loss season next week against Temple.

Baylor sophomore QB Zach Smith (shoulder) would only play against Texas Tech in an emergency capacity on Saturday.

Smith injured his shoulder against Texas two weekends ago and remains limited on that front. Charlie Brewer will start for the Bears in his place versus the Red Raiders. If Brewer performs well in that contest, we wouldn't be surprised if Bears HC Matt Rhule just rolls with the true freshman for the remainder of the campaign to see what he can do in an extended audition.

Baylor HC Matt Rhule said that sophomore QB Zach Smith (shoulder) remains limited.

While Rhule has not yet named a starter between Smith and Charlie Brewer for this weekend's game against Texas Tech, he said that if the game was being played on Tuesday, Brewer would have been the man to draw the assignment. There's still time for Smith to get right, but he'll need to make some strides on the health front if he's to start against the Red Raiders on Saturday. We feel like Baylor's offense might be better off with Brewer regardless.
