Cortez Johnson was working as a starting cornerback opposite Aaron Colvin.
But Johnson was suspended for the Sooners’ season-opening 34-0 win over Louisiana-Monroe last weekend, and redshirt freshman Zack Sanchez started in his place.
Sanchez played well Saturday. So well, Stoops said, that for now, he remains the starter.
“It’s been tight all along anyways,” Stoops said Monday. “Zack’s played really well. Exciting to see him playing like that.”
Johnson transferred from Arizona after his true freshman season in 2011 and sat out last year, per NCAA rules. His suspension stems from an arrest in December 2012, when Johnson and receiver Jalen Saunders were pulled over and found to be in possession of marijuana.
Charges against Saunders were later dropped. (The Oklahoman)
