nning back Jonathan Miller
is doubtful with a knee injury.
Offensive lineman/tight end Eric Mensik
underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery, but the damage was less than anticipated, and Mensik will be able to participate in spring practices. Receiver Brandon Caleb
will also participate after recovering from an ankle injury suffered during the season.
Stoops also added that defensive back Javon Harris
could likely receive time at running back during spring practices.
Recruits expected to qualify academically
Stoops said all 28 Sooner signees are expected to qualify academically. Kenny Stills
, a receiver from La Costa Canyon in California, is an early enrollee but is waiting to hear back on an issue with the NCAA Clearinghouse, and has yet to sign his letter of intent.
Four other OU signees (OL Bronson Irwin
, DB Tony Jefferson
, WR Sheldon McClain
and OL Austin Woods
) have enrolled early. McClain is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in September.
