Opposing offenses shy away from OU signee Aaron Colvin

The game plan of every opposing offense of Owasso cornerback Aaron Colvin?

Throw the other way.

Colvin finished his senior season with 64 tackles, but just eight pass breakups and only one interception.

That's because quarterbacks rarely tested him. When they did, they paid. Colvin's lone pick went for a touchdown.

Because of his modest stat line, Colvin (5-11, 170) may be one of the more underrated prospects in this Oklahoma recruiting class (rated the No. 31 cornerback nationally by Rivals.com).

Still, Colvin has the chance to be an instant impact player on special teams. And it might not be long before he becomes a factor at cornerback, where the Sooners will be replacing 2009 starters Dominique Franks and Brian Jackson.

"I know what I have to do. I know I have to work," Colvin said. "Everybody is good at OU. You have to just do what you can."
