Oklahoma coaches haven't released a spring depth chart. Based on interviews with players and coaches The Oklahoman has compiled a two-deep looking ahead to two-a-days. Injured starters who sat out the spring with injuries are listed as starters.


The only incoming player this summer who made the list was junior college wide receiver Courtney Gardner, although other newcomers, including some highly regarded freshmen, will have an opportunity to earn their way on the two-deep this fall.

O-line analysis: A veteran O-line returns four starters. Lane Johnson moves from right to left tackle. Adam Shead is starting this spring, while Habern is out with a neck injury and Ikard is playing center. Williams is exclusively a right tackle. The other three tackles can play both sides.

SLOT RECEIVER

WIDE RECEIVER

TIGHT END

82 Brannon Green; 6-4; 260; Jr.

88 Taylor McNamara; 6-5; 235; Fr.

Receivers analysis: Stills and Reynolds are returning starters. Franks has had a really solid spring. Metoyer has created the biggest buzz all spring and could push his way into the starting lineup. The young tight ends are making steady progress, especially Green.

RUNNING BACK

8 Dominique Whaley; 5-10; 197; Sr.

24 Brennan Clay; 5-11; 194; J.r

22 Roy Finch; 5-7; 166; Jr.

FULLBACK

33 Trey Millard; 6-2; 249; Jr.

48 Aaron Ripkowski; 6-2; 255; So.

Running backs analysis: Clay reportedly has played very well this spring. Finch can break off some nifty runs but might be most valuable as a receiver out of the backfield. Bob Stoops raves about the versatile Millard. A couple of standout backs report this summer.
