Sooners depth chart to clear up soon

by Ryan Aber Published: August 13, 2014

Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said the defensive depth chart would start to clear up after the next scrimmage.

“We’ve got one more big scrimmage on Thursday and that’ll kinda dictate, pretty much set the two-deep after that,” Stoops said.

The biggest position battle continues to be at safety opposite Quentin Hayes.

Sophomores Ahmad Thomas and Hatari Byrd as well as freshman Steven Parker are vying for that spot.

“That’s kind of up in the air right now,” Stoops said. “Those guys are battling; they all do good things. All need to learn how to be in better position and playmakers, and that’s just through youthful inexperience and finding the football. That’s something we’ve got to continue to improve.”
