Big 12 links: OU players learn Wilson is paralyzed from waist down

Sad news this morning as Oklahoma wide receiver Corey Wilson fights for his life in an Oklahoma City hospital.

John Hoover of the Tulsa World reports that Oklahoma players received an e-mail earlier this week from coaches telling them that Wilson is paralyzed from the waist down after he was involved in an automobile accident last week.

That sobering information puts everything into perspective as three schools continue spring work across the Big 12 and others are getting ready for the start of practice next week.

Hopefully, there's will be better news for Wilson in the future. We all are praying for his recovery.

Here's some other news from across the conference this morning.
