Running back Daniel Brooks, who committed to the Sooners in March 2011 then suffered a knee injury his senior year of high school, is finally running again and hopes to regain his health as he redshirts this season.
Miller Safrit/ESPN.comDaniel Brooks, a 2012 Oklahoma signee, tore his ACL during the spring at a track meet.
“He wasn’t able to practice but we still brought him in with the 105 group (this summer), so that he could rehabilitate,” Bob Stoops said Tuesday. “He’s been diligent out there with the trainers and he’s been running the past week-and-a-half. He’s been very diligent just going through the rehab phase. And he’s doing well with it.”
Stoops added that the Sooners never wavered in honoring Brooks’ scholarship, even though it was apparent he had a long recovery back from severed ligaments in his knee.
“It is the right thing to do,” Stoops said. “He made a commitment to us and we were committed to him. Now, it’s a different story had you offered a guy and he never committed to you. You’re not obligated there. But if we tell a guy that, then we’re going to stay with it. Most all the coaches I know would do that. I’d be pretty surprised if anyone didn’t do that.”
