Florida State transfer quarterback Chubba Purdy received an offer from Oklahoma earlier this week. On Thursday, he and his family visited with new head coach Brent Venables.

 A former On3 Consensus four-star recruit out of the Class of 2020, Purdy entered the NCAA Transfer Portal back on Nov. 3 after appearing in one game this season.

Over two seasons, Chubba Purdy has played in four games and completed 32-of-58 passes for 317 yards and four touchdowns with one interception before opting to transfer. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound quarterback is an Arizona native and the brother of former Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy, who recently declared for the 2022 NFL draft.

Oklahoma has already added one transfer quarterback since the departure of freshman Caleb Williams and decommitment of 2023 prospect Malachi Nelson, getting former UCF star Dillon Gabriel to decommit from UCLA.

Oklahoma legend inducted into College Football Hall of Fame

Former Oklahoma Sooners defensive back Roy Williams earned his induction into the 2022 College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation announced on Monday.

Williams won the Bronko Nagurski Award for the nation’s best defensive player and the Jim Thorpe Award for the nation’s best defensive back in 2001. He posted 107 tackles and 22 pass breakups that season, a Sooner’s record for PBUs.

Roy Williams had 287 tackles and 44 pass breakups during his Oklahoma career. His 44 pass breakups rank second in Oklahoma history, behind Derrick Strait. His career tackle total ranks third in the Sooners’ record books among DBs.

Williams’ name will live on in Oklahoma football lore for centuries after the “Superman Play.” The defensive back caused a fumble in the Red River Shootout, leading to a Sooners victory over the Longhorns in 2001.

After opting to enter the NFL Draft early, Williams went No. 8 overall to the Dallas Cowboys in 2002. He played seven seasons for Dallas before wrapping up his career as a Cincinnati Bengal in 2010.

Roy Williams joins LSU’s Kevin Faulk, Penn State’s Lavar Arrington and Georgia’s Champ Bailey.

The 2022 College Football Hall of Fame Class induction ceremony takes place during the 64th NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 6.
