Where he fits on the depth chart: Not only is Trice a talented athlete, he’s reportedly incredibly intelligent, notching a score of 1390 on his SATs. If he picks up the defensive scheme quickly, Trice could back up rising junior Dom Franks at field corner either next season or in 2010. Long-term impact: The Sooners recruited Gabe Lynn to someday compete for a starting spot at boundary corner and Trice to do the same on the field side. Whether Trice is able to do that in 2011 or later will be up to his development.
