Blitz Package

HOT READ

Who's hot: QB Landry Jones

The OU sophomore QB has built on his Sun Bowl performance, where he threw for 418 yards and three TDs. Through two scrimmages this spring, Jones has tossed only one pick. He was the top player taken in the Red-White Spring Game draft Thursday.


IN THE CROSSHAIRS

Players to watch: LBs Ronnell Lewis and Tom Wort

The future of the Sooner defense will be pitted on opposite sides of the ball. Lewis, on the White; Wort, the Red.

Lewis is coming off a dominating performance in the Sun Bowl. For Wort, this is his first public appearance since tearing an ACL last preseason.

KEEP AN EYE ON.

Underclassman who could make a big impact: WR Kenny Stills

The early enrollee freshman has dazzled in the scrimmages, and closing in on locking up a spot in the receiving rotation next season.

DOUBLE COVERAGE

Key matchup: Kickers Patrick O'Hara vs. Jimmy Stevens

While O'Hara supplanted Stevens last season, the place-kicking competition is far from being over. O'Hara remains the leader, but Stevens could chip away at his standing with a big showing today.
