Oklahoma RB Pledger, QB Mordecai announce transfer plans
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma runs back T.J. Pledger and quarterback Tanner Mordecai say they plan to transfer
Both made their announcements on social media. Mordechai said he had already entered the transfer portal. Pledger said he had decided to enter.
Pledger had an injury-ridden career with the Sooners. He ran 451 yards and five touchdowns that season, and caught nine passes for 77 yards this season. At his best stretch, he ran 131 yards and two touchdowns against Texas, then 122 yards and a score against TCU.
Pledger's role waned when Rhamondre Stevenson returned from suspension. Stevenson has won 690 yards from scrimmage in five games since his return. The Sooners also have talented newbies to support Seth McGowan and Marcus Major.
Pledger is just the newest Sooner to run back to enter the portal. Trey Sermon stepped on the portal prior to this season and landed in the state of Ohio, where he set a school record of 331 meters when he beat Northwestern in the Big Ten championship on Saturday.
Mordecai completed 80% of his passes that season for 395 yards and two touchdowns as a backup. He briefly replaced Spencer Rattler against Texas that season, completing 5 of 7 passes for 52 yards. Rattler resigned and led the Sooners to victory in four hours of overtime.
Rattler became one of the nation's most prolific quarterbacks. The Sooners also signed Caleb Williams, the nation's leading No. 1 quarterback recruit, last week.
