* No surprises at wide receiver, with Trey Metoyer, Justin Brown and Kenny Stills listed as starters and Lacoltan Bester, Durron Neal and Sterling Shepard backing them up, respectively. Fresno State transfer Jalen Saunders is not listed at all, although Stoops said he expects to hear back on his NCAA waiver request for immediate playing time Tuesday. If he's able to play, that makes things awfully interesting, because Stoops said he's been playing as an inside receiver. Would that push Shepard out of the top rotation? I can't imagine that it would, but Saunders would be a tough player to keep out if he's able to play.
* Geneo Grissom or Brannon Green are listed as the starter at tight end, with true freshman Taylor McNamara also listed as a backup. All three will play, Stoops said, but all indications have been that Grissom has taken hold of the starting spot since moving over from defensive end before the summer. Green, a junior-college transfer, was the starter listed on the spring depth chart.
