Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. If Dominique Whaley wasn’t healthy, you get the feeling OU might have to insert freshman Alex Ross into the lineup. But even with Whaley healthy, Ross seems like he might be earning his way into the rotation. According to reports from Jake Trotter, Ross had a big scrimmage outing Thursday to continue his solid camp. Ross was one of the best Oklahoma high school prospects as a junior. An injury-plagued senior season saw his stock fall a bit, but that all seems to be a thing of the past.

2. The more I hear about linebacker Tom Wort, the more concerned I get regarding his health. It’s not one thing with Wort. It’s several different ailments. Those don’t just normally go away. When healthy, Wort plays bigger than his size, but who knows when that Wort will be able to show up? It’s clear he won’t and shouldn’t see any scrimmage time, but the defense definitely takes a hit if Wort cannot be at 100 percent.
