Pro Football Focus released their College All-America Team for the 2022 season, and one Sooner made the cut. Punter Michael Turk received an honorable mention.
After being undrafted a few years back, Turk transferred to OU and “Hangtime” became a fan favorite. His exploits with a certain football stuck in the roof at the Sooners’ training facility went viral on Tik Tok.
Turk was third in the nation in punt average and 12th in total punt yards. There were times when the offense couldn’t move the ball at all, and Turk was called upon to flip the field. Flipping the field is something Turk did very well. Of his 60 punts on the season, Turk downed 20 of them inside the 20-yard-line.
With his eligibility exhausted, Turk will not return to the Sooners next season. He’s a bit older than other punters leaving college, but his booming punts and ability to flip the field could be attractive to some teams.
Before the season started, Turk was the lone Sooner featured on the All-Big 12 Football Team.
On the PFF’s First Team, there was a familiar face at QB: USC‘s Caleb Williams. Williams has been the best player in America this season and will most likely win the Heisman.
