One of the biggest position battles defensively this spring is the one to replace all-conference cornerback Jamell Fleming. When asked who has stood out thus far, Bob Stoops singled out senior-to be Lamar Harris.
“He and Joe Powell continue to get the most action there,” Stoops said. “They're doing well with it.”
Powell, a converted wideout, played corner last season before switching to receiver for the Insight Bowl because of depth concerns.
While Harris and Powell have shown the most this spring, Stoops added that “there's always an opportunity to put Aaron Colvin there as well.” Colvin, who started safety last season, played corner as a freshman while backing up Fleming. Colvin is sitting out this spring so his injured shoulder can recover.
