alexander A Little OU Football Roster Spring Cleaning

Image via Bleacher Report

If you missed it, last week we went over some of the changes in OU’s online roster with respect to player’s height and weight. Now we have some more changes, primarily jersey numbers, as the Sooners have once again updated their roster with spring practices kicking off this weekend.

First, there was one position change. Sam Grant who had previously been a tight end has made what many felt was the inevitable move to offensive tackle. As such, his number has changed from #81 to #76.

Other jersey number changes:

QB Justice Hansen will be #4
LB Devante Bond will be #5
FB Dimitri Flowers will be #36
TE Isaac Ijalana will be #80
QB Baker Mayfield will be #6
LB Dominique Alexander was #42, will now be #1
WR K.J. Young was #85, will now be #1
WR Dannon Cavil was #6, will now be #7
WR Austin Bennett was #83, will now be #8
WR Jordan Smallwood was #80, will now be #17

I believe that is most of them, or at least those that are the most relevant (no offense intended to any less heralded and/or walk-on guys I missed). But if you see any omissions, hit me up in the comments and I’ll update the post.

    Grant to OT, huh? Great! I hope he’s another Lane Johnson.

  • Sooner Ray

    Glad to see Grant go to tackle. Guess I’ve got some new rosters I need to print.

  • Sooner Ray

    Bond has #5, If Elam commits he may want his number. Seen he finally got the offer.

    • Shifty

      Bond will only be here two years so at worst he would have to use another # for his fresh year

      • Sooner Ray

        Yeah, I actually thought about that after I posted. I thought it was funny today in Bob’s presser when asked about guys and their numbers. He said it comes up sometimes in recruiting that a guy will request his number and “you say yeah, sure” and when they actually get on campus you say well you’ll have to wait till that number is available. LOL.

          Hey! I am back!

          • Sooner Ray

            Bout damn time! we missed ya, you’ll like this place. Plug you in an avatar now so you’ll be easy to spot. Pittbull will be proud.

          • JJ

            I jacked around with an avatar… Found one from the car service on that sugar bowl day about 3 hrs b4 my tumble

          • Sooner Ray

            I like it, everybody seems to like the one I picked. Bet you can’t guess why…..LOL.

          • JJ

            Hilarious!!

  • Doobie74OU

    Thanks for the Updates as always!

    • Jordan Esco

      Happy to do it

  • Boomer4life

    Wish we could heard Bob’s thoughts on who he thought could contribute right out of the gate from the 14 class.

    • Jordan Esco

      I feel pretty confident in saying he’d be excited about each and every one of their futures. He tends to go full on coach speak w/ addressing those type of things.

      • Doobie74OU

        “BEST RECRUITING CLASS EVER! THESE GUYS HAD THE BEST OFFSEASON EVER! DONE EVERYTHING WE ASKED! REALLY EXCITED ABOUT EVERYBODY! MAKES IT HARD ON US COACHES DECIDING WHO WILL START! EVERY POSITION IS WIDE OPEN! COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH OUR PROGRESS!” says Coach Stoops at every Spring press conference. Got to love “BIG GAME” Bob Stoops! LOL!

        • Jordan Esco

          You pretty much nailed it. Just need to sprinkle in a couple “in the end” and/or “in a good way”

        • Doobie74OU

          I added those for you Jordan! LOL!

  • Sooner Ray

    With Bosworth being up for the Hall of Fame this year, does anyone find it odd that a punter wears the #44 and not one of our LB’s has requested that coveted number?

    • Boomer4life

      That is very odd indeed.

    • 38Special

      Probably because Bosworth’s 44 isn’t coveted by these kids who were born half a decade or more after Boz left OU. Same reason Boz wasn’t clamoring to wear Jerry Tubbs’ #53.

  • JJ

    K. Finally got my login straightened out… Hello old friends…

    • Sooner Ray

      Could this really be the one legged texass JJ???

      • JJ

        Indeed… #1LeggedTexassJJ indeed

        • Sooner Ray

          Find anything that Jordan has posted and reply to him so he knows you’re here now.

          • JJ

            K I will

    • Jordan Esco

      About damn time! ;)

      • JJ

        Frickin log ins… Had been trying the whole time I was laying on my butt

        • Jordan Esco

          Well, welcome!

        • Jordan Esco

          I was just talking w/ Heath the other day and he was asking why you never posted here ;)

          • JJ

            Yeah, I can’t remember when I talked to Heath last. It was after a bball game…

        • Sooner Ray

          So have you at least been reading and keeping up with what we do here?

          • JJ

            Yeah…

    • JJsooner1
