It's been a while since Rex Grossman was mentioned in football conversations.

At least it was until On3 compared recruiting a five-star quarterback to him.

On3 Compares Recent Oklahoma Commitment Jackson Arnold to Grossman

On3's scouting report says, "Jackson Arnold's live arm, quick release and compact build remind us of Rex Grossman."

"Like Grossman, Arnold plays with a strong base and creates a lot of zip on his passes.

Arnold could be more of a threat for a run in the same leg."

Grossman played college football in Florida. He was named SEC Player of the Year in 2001.

During that season, he completed 65.6 percent of passes for 3,896 yards with 34 touchdowns.

Even though Grossman was a prolific quarterback at the collegiate level, Oklahoma fans aren't happy with the player's comparisons to Arnold. Tea

The cap is probably because Grossman failed to live up to expectations in the NFL.

"We didn't ask for it," said one Oklahoma fan

"Don't make me mad," tweeted one fan.

While some fans may be disappointed by On3's comparisons to Arnold,

The reality is that Grossman was the first-round pick coming out of college.

If Arnold can reflect on Grossman's success in college, he will soon be in good hands.

Arnold is currently ranked 15th overall and the number 5 quarterback per 247Sports Composite Rankings since the 2023 category.
