Who’s Next Up At OL?

With Adkins gone, could OSU bring back Josh Henson?

Gundy will make a new hire for the offensive line position and the natural speculation would be bringing back last season’s offensive analyst and former Missouri offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Josh Henson. That may be more difficult now as Henson was hired by Arizona State and Todd Graham as offensive line coach, run game coordinator, and assistant head coach.

Just this week Graham replaced his offensive coordinator by hiring Alabama receivers coach Billy Napier and naming Napier and Henson as co-offensive coordinators. Henson is also reported to be making $1.5 million over the next three years guaranteed, that is total, not annual. [Go Pokes – $]

This seems less than ideal, but Henson would have been (would be?) a great fit.

Kaylee Jensen’s Improbable Path

She graduated with 14 people! Fourteen!

OSU has been well rewarded for its small-town game. With 21 points in a Wednesday loss against Texas, Jensen became just the 23rd player in program history to reach 1,000 career points. Friends and family back in Genoa will certainly be proud the next time Jensen returns home. Her rural roots haven’t faded.

“Cornfields as far as the eye can see,” Jensen said. “It sounds boring, but I loved it.” [NewsOK]

Good story by Kyle Fredrickson there. Amid a down OSU Cowgirls season, Jensen has been sensational.

Nathan Adrian, Difference-Maker

Already this season, Bob Huggins has hailed Nate Adrian as one of the best players in the Big 12 and warned that if that’s not true then he wants nothing to do with a team boasting superior parts. West Virginia’s coach has praised the senior from Morgantown High for his smarts, for his effort, for his defense, for his shooting, for his passing, for his footwork, for his improvement and for his ability to never miss a game in four seasons.

“Nate’s had a heck of a career,” Huggins said. “It’s just that we had maybe some other guys through the years. But he’s the ultimate team guy. He doesn’t mind taking a back seat to someone else.” [WV Gazette-Mail]

Not to be confused with the Olympic swimmer! Oh, and Adrian has never lost to KU at home.

OSU and NCAA Notes

Remembering Lloyd Noble’s first sellout (spoiler: It wasn’t last season) … Joe Mixon wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine (but he will definitely get drafted) … Not a good look for CU … Mason Rudolph was apparently on a plane by himself this week.

Yassss … bring me all the talent.
