King Ahead of Washington on Depth Chart

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

David King ahead of R.J. Washington on OU depth chart: Last year, R.J. Washington might have been the top prep defensive end in the country. But at the moment, he's working behind fellow redshirt freshman David King on the depth chart. "David King's really matured a lot," said defensive ends coach Chris Wilson. "Obviously, they're as raw as you can get right now, but David's improved and I really like his upside. "R.J.'s improvement right now, if I was going to rank him, I'd say R.J. is probably fifth in this group of guys coming back (behind Auston English, Jeremy Beal, Frank Alexander and King)."

"I thought Landry . . . before (spring) break, started to come on and started to, you could tell, started to get more and more comfortable, which is good," head coach Bob Stoops said after a recent practice. . . . (He) seems to be coming along really well." (Tulsa World)
