Among the names Stoops rattled off were wide receivers Jameel Owens and Dejuan Miller, offensive linemen Ben Habern and Stephen Good and safety Joseph Ibiloye. "There will be some others, too,” Stoops said. Running backs Justin Johnson and Jermie Calhoun, defensive end R.J. Washington, kicker Tress Way, tight end James Hanna and cornerback Lamar Harris are other freshmen who could play next weekend in the opener against Tennessee-Chattanooga.
