Chat wrap: More on Evans' injury
SoonerNation writer Jake Trotter chatted with readers on Monday about Oklahoma football and recruiting. Here's the full transcript. If you didn't get your question answered, send it to Jake's mailbag.
Here are a few highlights from the chat:
Rocky (Missouri): What does the injury to Tyler Evans do to OU and their OL depth? What does the starting OL look like now?
Jake Trotter: It hurts. The good news is that OG/C is the deepest part of the team (or was). Bronson Irwin will be slotted in at RG. Across the board, you have LT Tyrus Thompson, LG Adam Shead, C Gabe Ikard, RG Bronson Irwin, RT Daryl Williams. Sooners are one more OL injury away from having some real problems.
chris (canfield): how much do you think brown will help the sooners?
Jake Trotter: Justin Brown is a big, fast, physical wideout. His hands are a question, but he'll stretch defenses downfield, which the Sooners desperately needed after Broyles got hurt last season. He could really help the return game, which has just been mediocre the last 5 years. Brown ranked 36th nationally in punt returns iin 2011.
Beej (Norman): I know they are talking about Brown in the return game but isn't A. Ross showing promise in that spot? He is a speed guy correct?
Curious fan (Here): What are you hearing about our linebackers? Do we have one that will be able to shed blocks?
Jake Trotter: I like Wort -- when he's healthy. Remember Florida State? He dominated that game. Corey Nelson has a lot of potential, too. It's not Calmus/Torrance Marshall, but they could be a solid 1-2 punch.
