Stoops Offers Someone from Home
Mark Stoops’ Ohio pipeline is no secret. With plenty of connections back home, he and Vince Marrow are always there to offer top talent early. That’s the case with sophomore-to-be Kyle Jornigan. The 6’4″ 290-pound defensive tackle plays at Stoops’ alma mater, Cardinal Mooney.
Cardinal Mooney has given Stoops a few talented players on defense. “A few” is actually an understatement. Some of the most important players on this year’s defense are from Mooney: Courtney Love, Marcus McWilson and Jordan Jones.
