STOOPS ON POSITION CHANGES
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was asked at Saturday's media day about Geneo Grissom, the sophomore who moved from defensive end to tight end during the offseason.

“Geneo's done all right at tight end,” Stoops said. “He's doing all right, right there right now.”
The comment didn't exactly come off like a ringing endorsement for Grissom, who saw action in six games and recorded five tackles as a redshirt freshman last season.
But it had only been two days, and Grissom hadn't played tight end since being used there occasionally in high school.
Stoops also said freshman Danzel Williams, a running back who redshirted last season, is working at defensive back during these early practices.
STOOPS PRAISES JONES' HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM
Stoops was asked recently about Artesia, N.M., the hometown of Sooners quarterback Landry Jones.
Jones led Artesia High to two straight state football championships, and Stoops praised the school's program based on what he saw while recruiting Jones.
“I thought the high school there, their head coach and the way they practice, was as fine a practice as I've seen anywhere — from high school to professional football,” Stoops said. “It was really impressive to watch. Of course, I was watching Landry throw the football really well.”
