Crimson Countdown: No. 52 Troy Everett

Eddie On3by:Eddie Radosevich07/09/24

The Crimson Countdown is officially on for the 2024 Oklahoma football season. Fans have been waiting for what feels like forever with this one. The Sooners are finally and officially joining the SEC.

The 2023 season was a rebound one for head coach Brent Venables, getting the program back to its standard. OU went 10-3 in Venables’ second season, now it’s time for year No. 3.

Every day as we get closer to kickoff, will count down the days with you. Starting with No. 99 and working our way to No. 0, we’ll be there every step of the way.

Crimson Countdown: No. 52 Troy Everett 

2023 stats: Played in nine games and made four starts at left guard before missing spring football with a knee injury.

2024 outlook: After starting the spring as the heir apparent to Andrew Raym at center, the biggest question for Everett will be how quickly he is given the green light in his return from surgery that ended his spring. SMU center Branson Hickman will start the year as the Sooners starter but Everett should be a valuable piece that adds both experience and depth to the Sooners interior offensive line.

Everett adjusted well for the Sooners in 2023, showing he wasn’t overwhelmed by the moment. But he’ll need to be even better for the line to be better in 2024.

2024 interior offensive line

While the offensive line is a concern for the Sooners, the interior might be its biggest strength. Transfers lead the way, with North Texas’ Febechi Nwaiwu who is expected to start at right guard and SMU’s Branson Hickman who is expected to start at center. At left guard, Jacob Sexton and Heath Ozaeta are battling for the spot, along with Washington transfer Geirean Hatchett. Freshmen Eugene Brooks, Daniel Akinkunmi and Eddy Pierre-Louis are all pushing for playing time in 2024.
