Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield signs as Nike athlete

Oklahoma pro day had a “Karate Kid” flavor to it.

No, Baker Mayfield wasn’t just doing his best Daniel Larusso impression with his all-Nike workout outfit on Wednesday.

The former Sooners quarterback, headband and all, is officially a Nike athlete, Mayfield announced via Twitter.

Mayfield auditioning for the next “Karate Kid” movie made plenty of sense with his out-of-the-box fashion statement. Some would definitely argue he is “the best around.”

It seems it was just his way of introducing himself to the world as a member of the Nike family.

Mayfield has made a big splash this offseason with solid outings at the Senior Bowl, NFL Scouting Combine and Oklahoma pro day.

It’s uncertain where he’ll land in the 2018 NFL Draft, but he is expected to be a top-15 pick.

The 2018 NFL Draft is scheduled for April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Mayfield will not be in Arlington for the draft, however, and will opt to stay home so he can watch the event with his family.
