All-American Ryan Broyles sat out as a precautionary measure. Kenny Stills played limited snaps. Two redshirt freshmen receivers were sidelined by injuries.

Oklahoma's receiver corps was thin in Saturday's spring game but Dejuan Miller and Jaz Reynolds seized the opportunity for additional snaps.

Miller led all receivers with 62 yards on six catches, including a 16-yard touchdown catch from sophomore Drew Allen. Miller was sidelined midway through last season by a knee injury.

"This means a lot," Miller said. "This was my last spring game. It was good to go out with a bang in my last spring game and play well... I feel I'm back to where I was. I feel 100 percent. I'm ready to start the season."

Reynolds, who was suspended much of last season for an insensitive Twitter comment, compiled four catches for 67 yards.

"He got a lot of snaps and did well," said OU coach Bob Stoops. "Jaz has had a good spring. He's coming on and has been more productive and consistent."

Playing time will be competitive this fall. Broyles already owns numerous school records. Stills had a standout freshman season as did Trey Franks. OU also signed Trey Metoyer who will arrive on campus in two months.
