NORMAN — Oklahoma’s tight ends didn’t play much last season, especially after Taylor McNamara’s early-season injury.
New tight ends coach Jay Boulware said he’s aware of the position’s history at Oklahoma, and vowed to help it become relevant again.
Continuing my unit-by-unit look at the 2013 Sooners, here’s a glance at Oklahoma’s tight ends entering Saturday’s spring game.
No.; Name; Cl.; Ht.; Wt.
82; Brannon Green; Sr.; 6-2; 250
88; Taylor McNamara; RFr.; 6-5; 238
81; Sam Grant; RFr.; 6-7; 250
89; Connor Knight; RFr.; 6-4; 227
Tight ends analysis: Oklahoma’s once-proud tight end position took a big hit last season. After the 2011 season, James Hanna and Trent Ratterree graduated and Austin Haywood — a promising young talent — quit the team, leaving OU with zero returning experience at tight end entering 2012.
Junior-college transfer Brannon Green caught a touchdown pass in the season opener at UTEP, but didn’t play much throughout the rest of the season. McNamara suffered a season ending injury early and received a medical redshirt.
