Stoops: DL Transfer Quincy Russell On The Cusp Of Joining Team

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Bob Stoops expects Trinity Valley (Texas) Community College transfer Quincy Russell to join the team this week. Talking with media after Monday's practice, Stoops confirmed that Russell had completed his academic requirements needed to finalize his transfer to Oklahoma.

For the Sooners' defense, Russell's availability will be immediately impactful. Stoops said the 6'4" 315-pound junior defensive lineman wouldn't take long to acclimate with his new team.

"I don't wanna say (defensive tackle) is easy to learn but basically it's just about technique," Stoops said. "The learning part of it, what he needs to do, he'll learn that fairly quickly."
