In a year where youth and a lack of experience has dominated storylines for Oklahoma, some of their more veteran players will be reaching a crossroads for their careers. Will guys like Marvin Mims, Anton Harrison, and Jalen Redmond opt to come back after a disappointing season for the team? Or was Saturday their last time playing in front of a sold-out crowd in Norman?
We decided to take a look at five guys that have some very tough decisions to make in the coming weeks.

The crown jewel of Oklahoma’s offensive line, left tackle Anton Harrison, came into this season with a lot of hype about his pro prospects. He delivered, anchoring the left side for Oklahoma’s offensive line all season long posting excellent grades in pass and run blocking.
A return to Oklahoma next year would be a massive boost for a team that could lose multiple players along the offensive line this offseason. While we speculate, it would seem Oklahoma has already thought about this and have a plan in place to entice Harrison to stay.
A report by Pro Football Network suggests Oklahoma has made an enticing offer to get Harrison to stay.
Across the board, Harrison seems a lock as a top 150 pick. Most draft sites have him no less than the 2nd round, and the pay scale for a second-rounder is plenty adequate.
However, another year of play like this would almost guarantee him a 1st round selection. Does he opt for the NFL draft, or does he take the reported NIL package and bet on himself one more year? Either way, Sooner fans should enjoy Harrison’s play the rest of the season.
Marvin Mims, WR
