When Blake Bell switched positions from quarterback to tight end, Oklahoma apparently said goodbye to the Belldozer.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops said Bell will no longer take snaps out of the short-yardage formation he made famous over the past three years. He will be a full-time tight end as a senior.

“No, not at all,” Stoops said when asked if Bell will continue seeing time at quarterback. “It’s funny that keeps coming up. When you look at him, he is the prototype tight end. He’s got great hands, great size. He can run.”

At 6-foot-6, 258 pounds, Bell certainly has the ideal body to play tight end.

“It’s in his genes,” Stoops said. “His dad was an NFL tight end for eight years. I think he’s really going to impact us in a great way.” (Kansas City Star)
