OU Football 2013 | Sooners Reserve Offensive Tackle, Nathan Hughes, Leaves Program

This really isn't a 'preview' per se, but seeing as it's spring related I figured we could throw it in the story stream here.

As first reported by Carey Murdock of SoonerScoop.com, Oklahoma reserve offensive tackle Nathan Hughes is no longer with the football program.

Hughes, originally a member of the 2011 class, signed with the Sooners as a defensive end out of high school. His signing was somewhat odd at the time given that at 6'6" he was considerably bigger than anyone Oklahoma had recruited at defensive end in the past.

In true Oklahoma fashion, the coaches moved him to offensive line last year because of his aforementioned size and athleticism. Hughes never saw the field in either of his two years in Norman.

With the rumors of Oklahoma considering a change to a 3-4 defensive scheme, there was some speculation that Hughes could move back to the defensive line this year. With his size, he seemed like a good fit as a 3-4 defensive end. Obviously, that won't be happening now.
