Spring Football Practice Session One Notes

Oklahoma started their spring drills on Wednesday and while their practices were held indoors at the Everest Facility here a just a few quick tidbits that came from the first workout.

Three true freshmen get first workout -- QB Landry Jones, OL Britt Mitchell and RB Justin Johnson all took the practice field for the first time as Sooners. They all three worked out with wide receivers coach Jay Norvell.

Brian Jackson could be a star -- The junior corner took a step in the right direction towards getting on the field and earned some praise from head coach Bob Stoops.

"He got his hands on more balls today than maybe any corner we've had in the past six or seven years," said Stoops.

Keenan Clayton is moving from the secondary to linebacker -- Both units need bodies with the absences left behind due to attrition but Clayton has linebacker size (6-1, 220) and secondary speed which makes him a good hybrid linebacker.

"The hardest part is going to be playing over a tight end and using hands and face on the linemen. You know, at DB, you hardly ever have to do that."
