Talking points: Getting defensive
Spring practice is in full swing and there are plenty of opportunities to earn a spot on the defensive side of the ball. Oklahoma State is looking to replace nine starters on defense but the Pokes have some talented youngsters on that side of the ball. Here are three names on the defensive side of the ball to keep an eye on:
LB Joe Mitchell: After NCAA clearinghouse issues forced him to return to Katy, Texas last fall, Mitchell returned this spring and has impressed early with his size (6-3, 215) and athletic ability. He is battling James Thomas to replace Andre Sexton at the “Star” linebacker position. If Mitchell can emerge as a contributor at the position this spring, it could help solidify a linebacker corps that must replace three senior starters.
