NORMAN — OU co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell was asked if coaches have begun deciding who the first-team receivers will be when OU opens its 2012 season at UTEP on Sept. 1.

“Nope; we’re playing about eight guys right now,” Norvell said. “We’ll find out as we go who ends up going where.”

Much of the depth chart positioning will depend on Fresno State transfer Jalen Saunders’ eligibility, but receivers competing for catches and playing time are: senior Justin Brown; juniors Kenny Stills, Lacoltan Bester and Saunders; and true freshmen Trey Metoyer, Durron Neal, Sterling Shepard and Derrick Woods.

“We don’t have any kind of depth chart at this point,” Norvell said. “We’ll just keep working until we play a ball game.”
