Sooners to Conduct Open Tryouts at Kicker

Apparently Bob Stoops thinks Oklahoma faces major concerns at place-kicker. And Patrick O'Hara, Jimmy Stevens, Bryce Easley and Michael Hunnicutt are not the answers to his concerns. Coach Stoops announced, following a windy Tuesday practice, the Sooners will conduct open walk-on tryouts at kicker on Thursday.

Stoops, who fielded questions from media members following Tuesday’s practice, was asked how his kickers handled the wind.

Stoops said: “Not good”

Immediate following that statement, Stoops was asked if kicking was his No. 1 concern.

“Sure,” Stoops replied.

While, last week, it was announced kicker Matt Moreland was leaving the team due to “academic” issues.
