Here’s our breaking story report Monday night at 10 about OU’s highly coveted true freshman defensive end Jalen Redmond expecting to miss this coming season due to a medical issue.

We reported that multiple sources confirmed Redmond is expecting to redshirt after suffering a non-football and treatable setback that should be remedied with proper medicine.

247Sports ranked the Midwest City product a five-star recruit and the 16th best overall prospect in the country.

Redmond becomes the second true freshman defensive player who’d been expected to contribute who expects to miss the season and redshirt, joining 4-star defensive tackle Michael Johnson, of St. Louis, out with a torn ACL.
