Williams admitted earlier this week that he'd heard what his offensive coordinator said of him.

"Yeah, I heard about it," Williams said. "I take it as motivation to go out there and be the best. Coach Wilson is a great coach and he has different tactics of motivating people."

Night train Lane

The Sooners made a surprise, late addition to their 2009 recruiting class. Last month, more than five months after national signing day, OU signed 6-foot-7, 252-pound Lane Johnson of Kilgore (Texas) College.

Johnson, actually a quarterback at Kilgore, is lining up at tight end for the Sooners.

Said coach Bob Stoops, "He's done a nice job. He's a big, strong, young guy that has great mobility and excellent speed. He fits in well with losing the guys we are. He's a guy that we're glad to have here right now developing.

"When you can play quarterback you can play about anything. So far he's shown toughness of getting in there and playing tight end."

Johnson, a sophomore, is expected to redshirt this season.

Quotable

"He's got those funny looking shoes on. We've got to do something about that." — Norvell on Kenney, a former high school soccer player who wears soccer cleats at OU's practices.
