Defensive coordinator Brent Venables was asked a question about freshman linebacker Corey Nelson the other day, but thought the question was about freshman fullback Trey Millard.
“Man, he’s a load at fullback,” Venables said. “We haven’t had a load like that since J.D. (Runnels).”
Despite being on campus for only a couple of months, Millard is OU’s starter at fullback over redshirt freshman Marshall Musil.
“Millard’s been a better blocker,” said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. “He’s probably the most skilled guy, and he’s blocked better than Brandon Crow and Marshall Musil. Right now he’s still a freshman and learning, but he’s 250 and he does have speed and he stumbles into good blocks. He’s still learning how to do it right every time but he’s got a chance.”
