OU fullback signee Dimitri Flowers received high praise from Sooners coach Bob Stoops on Wednesday, who compared the San Antonio (Churchill) product to former ’hybrid’ back Trey Millard.

“Dimitri Flowers is a hybrid H-back, fullback that reminds us a lot of Trey Millard,” Stoops said. “That’s a huge compliment to him. He’s the first guy in about four years that we have said that about.”

Millard, a senior whose career ended when he suffered a torn ACL against Texas Tech last season, was often mentioned as one of Stoops’ favorite players during his time at OU for his versatility.
