Lincoln Riley is well known for his acumen on all things quarterbacks. He has recently mentored two Heisman award winning quarterbacks in Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield. You combine this with the fact that his explosive style of offense is the premier dynamite brand in college football, you could consider him an offense expert witness.
Recently when Riley was on the stand, more like a press conference, and reporters asked him what he thought of then opposing Houston Cougar quarterback D’Eriq King? He didn’t hold back in his juicy, heated and honest testimony.

With such admiration from Riley profoundly on display, You might of thought that Oklahoma was going to be the final destination for the “Ferrari with Feet” in King.
