Oklahoma Sooners

Big 12 All-Decade Team | Tight End

M. Hofeld


You won’t find a more dominant tight end from the Big 12, over the last decade, than Oklahoma’s Mark Andrews. Possessing the perfect combination of size and speed that made him a constant mismatch against defenders, Andrews racked up 1,765 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns during his three seasons for the Sooners.

Andrews was a two-time All-Conference selection (2016, 2017) and winner of the John Mackey Award, given out to the nation’s most outstanding tight end, in 2017.

“I don’t know what the roster says but he’s almost 260 (lbs.) and he’s moving well. He’s a guy that you look at the stat sheet and he’s got seven catches for 134 yards so I have to get him the ball.”
