Things are getting a little cloudy in Norman.

Oklahoma redshirt junior running back Kennedy Brooks has opted out of the 2020 football season.

Brooks informed Sooners coach Lincoln Riley of his decision Sunday afternoon, according to sources close to the program who asked not to be identified because Brooks has yet to make his decision public.

Brooks, from Mansfield, Texas, has rushed for 2,067 yards and 18 touchdowns in the past two seasons combined. He led the Sooners in rushing yardage in 2018 and was second last season behind quarterback Jalen Hurts.

This news comes on the heels of nine Sooners players testing positive for COVID-19 after returning from break, and as the debate about the 2020 college football season continues online and on campuses. Now try and guess which new Ohio State transfer is going to be immediately linked to this story!
