Madu to Play More at Slot

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

OU plans to use Mossis Madu at slot: Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops said last week he anticipates using third-string running back Mossis Madu in the slot next season. "It'll be one of those cases where we'll have him ready to be," Stoops said. "To some degree, you could put him in the slot and move Ryan (Broyles) outside." But while Madu could play more in the slot, he won't be changing positions, even though he'll have to share carries behind DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown. (The Oklahoman)

Sooners looking to recruit touted QB Connor Wood: With quarterback Sam Bradford's future beyond 2009 an unknown and neither redshirt freshman Landry Jones or newcomer Drew Allen having any game experience, Bob Stoops said recruiting a quarterback in the 2010 class is a priority. "It's always a priority," he said. The Sooners currently appear to be in good with Connor Wood of Houston Second Baptist. According to, Wood lists Georgia, Missouri, LSU, Texas and Texas A&M among his favorites, along with OU, Stanford and TCU — the last three of which, the Web site reports, have offered scholarships.
