Trey Sermon has been instrumental in closing out games for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Sermon has 283 yards and counting for Oklahoma, and is averaging 6.6 yards per carry. He erupted on the scene against Baylor with 12 carries for 148 yards, every single carry coming in the 4th quarter.
According to fullback Dimitri Flowers, he’s incredibly mature for his age, too.
In an interview with Cliff Brunt of the Associated Press, Flowers said, “He doesn’t play like a true freshman. That’s something that we’re going to need in this offense if we want to continue to be successful.”
Trey Sermon is an absolute bulldozer at 6’0, 222 pounds. His devastating frame and versatility means that Oklahoma has a running back that can close out a game against a tired defense.
The Sooners are going to need his closing abilities if they’re going to continue their undefeated streak. Lots of teams in the Big 12 Conference are looking very strong, and several games might push the Sooners to the brink. Luckily, they’ll have one of the best young running backs in the business when that time comes.
