Oklahoma football: OU clarifies Bob Stoops' Twitter remarks

by Ryan Aber and Jason Kersey Published: July 27, 2013

“He's the most athletic of three,” Ikard said. “He puts up crazy numbers in the weight room with the agility and speed stuff. It probably has a lot to do with it. He's very good at throwing on the run. He makes quick decisions and is a smart football player.

“He's very dedicated to learning the game when it comes to the film room and stuff like that. Whether he's playing now or later, he has a bright future ahead of him. He's a very talented athlete and a great guy.”

MILLARD COULD SEE EVEN MORE TOUCHES

Stoops was asked at Media Days whether some of the touches that went to high-profile receivers Kenny Stills and Justin Brown last season could find their way into Millard's hands this season.

“Trey, you're getting 150 more plays this year,” Stoops yelled to Millard, who was sitting in the next booth. “You're getting all those balls that Kenny and Justin caught.”

Stoops was joking, but later said some of those touches could go Millard's way.

“I don't want to totally discard that because the receiver position is different,” Stoops said. “But it is fair to say if certain plays to him are working well, that could happen to a degree.”

Millard had 58 touches last season after having 34 as a sophomore.

Stoops said he had to be careful to make sure Millard got a breather from time to time.

“When you watch him play on plays he isn't carrying, he's knocking the heck out of somebody or chasing someone,” Stoops said. “He does need spelled out of the game.”
