Stoops: Chuka Ndulue Will Have to Earn His Way on the Field

Cornerback Cortez Johnson and defensive tackle Chuka Ndulue were listed as starters but missed the first game due to breaking team rules in the offseason. Now, they’ll have to earn their spot back.

Ndulue is in a similar situation after Jordan Phillips, Charles Tapper and Geneo Grissom started in OU’s three-man front and played well, earning praise from Stoops for being disruptive. Ndulue can play defensive end or defensive tackle, which could make his road back onto the field a bit easier.

“He’ll have to earn his way on the field,” Stoops said of Ndulue. “He can play inside or outside, he can do both.”

It would make sense for Ndulue to be the fourth defensive linemen when the Sooners decide to employ a four-man front this season. (ESPN.com
