New Arkansas State head coach Gus Malzahn already landed one highly touted transfer in former Auburn running back Michael Dyer. Now, he’s getting another.
Malzahn announced today that former Tennessee running back David Oku would also be joining ASU’s roster. Tennessee announced Oku’s decision to transfer in January of last year.
Oku signed with Tennessee in 2009 as the No. 1 All Purpose Back according to Rivals.com. However, he finished his two-year career at Tennessee with just 268 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Unlike Dyer, who will most likely have to sit out the 2012 season, Oku will be able to play immediately since he sat out all of last year.
