Outside linebacker Jalen Redmond was limited to just three games appearances in 2018 due to blood clotting. In those three games he recorded nine tackles, with 2.5 being for loss.
Initially thought to have been lost for the entire 2018 season, when first diagnosed in July, Redmond was able to play against TCU, Kansas State, and Texas Tech before a recurrence of the clots shut him down again.
Now, as the Sooners get set to go into summer workouts, Redmond appears to be healthy once again and ready to take the field as a redshirt freshman.
“Jalen is doing well,” Lincoln Riley said during a meeting with the media on Friday. “We expect to have him full go this summer. We don’t expect any limitations going through. We’ll obviously monitor it very, very closely. That’s what we’ve always done with our guys.”
Redmond came to Oklahoma as a 5-star recruit (per 247Sports) from Midwest City. 247 also had him ranked as the #2 overall prospect from the state of Oklahoma for the 2018 recruiting class.
