Numbers For The New Guys And The Spring Football Depth Chart

New, 16 comments

Five freshmen from Oklahoma's 2010 recruiting class are on campus and will participate in spring ball next month. Now we know which jersey numbers they'll be wearing.

DB Tony Jefferson  - Jersey No. 1
WR Kenny Stills  - Jersey No. 4
OL Austin Woods - Jersey No. 50
OL Bronson Irwin - Jersey No. 68
WR Sheldon McClain - Jersey No. 88

The spring football depth chart was also released on Tuesday and while there really are no surprises I still have a few thoughts.

  • Gabe Ikard is listed as the team's backup center. In true Brody Eldridge fashion it appears that OU is taking another tight end and moving him to the offensive line. Ikard was the #15 tight end recruit in the nation (per Rivals) coming out of high school.
  • Eric Mensik has been moved back to tight end. So we're taking a reserve tight end that never played and putting him on the offensive line and switching the tight end that made two starts on the offensive line (and played very well) and moving him back to tight end. I guess we just have to trust the coaches on this one.
  • James Hannah isn't on the two deep at tight end. I gained some massive respect for Trent Ratterree this last season for being the best tight end on the team not named Jermaine Gresham but I still can't figure out what is holding up James Hannah. Is it work ethic? Can the dude not block? Why, tell me why? Maybe I'm just expecting too much.
  • Dejuan Miller, Jaz Reynolds and Ryan Broyles are listed as the starting wide receivers. That could turn out being a very good trio of receivers. Is anyone else excited about that?
  • Adrian Taylor is listed as one of the starting defensive tackles. I doubt we'll see him this spring because of the injury suffered in the bowl game which means we should get a good look at Stacey McGee.
  • Ronnell (The Hammer) Lewis is listed ahead of Austin Box at strong side linebacker. How could he not be after his bowl performance?
  • Demontre Hurst and Jonathan Nelson are listed as the starting corners. This is the position I am most curious to see this spring because the Sooners are losing two very good players at that position and its critical that there not be much of a drop off in production.
  • Patty O'Hara is still listed as the placekicker. Me likes this!

Spring football starts on March 8th.
