Lawton coach Randy Breeze has received plenty of production from D.J. Ward at defensive end in recent seasons.

Breeze, though, plans to give Ward a shot at tight end at times next year.

“He'll still play every snap on defense,” Breeze said. “But we'll use D.J. some there. He's worked on his hands a great deal, and I think he could be a Division-I tight end if he wanted to be. but he's still a better defensive end.”

Ward, who remains No. 1 on the Super 30 list, committed to Oklahoma in April after visiting the Sooners' spring game.

“He's still the same old very humble, very positive young man,” Breeze said.

During last week's spring workouts, Ward ran a 4.57 40 and is up to benching 330 pounds.
