Oklahoma’s secondary, which struggled at times last year, has gotten some help recently as former tailback D.J. Wolfe has moved to cornerback in the spring. He’s now running with the second team, according to the Norman Transcript.
The move of former linebacker Lewis Baker to safety underscores the further trouble the Sooner secondary may be in after losing Antonio Perkins and Brodney Pool to the NFL.
We can see the Sooners losing at least three games this year and this could be a big reason why.
Bruce Feldman of ESPN concurs:
I’m thinking OU might be headed for a couple of three-loss seasons. I predict the Sooners are headed for a dip like Miami has had the past two years — not a Penn State-type fall off the cliff drop, but more of a linger around No. 11 or 12 type of thing. We have grown accustomed to Bob Stoops overcoming most challenges, but after how the last two seasons ended, I think a little of the luster has worn off. But it’s a little bigger than that, too.
