When DeBerry went home to Virginia after the Sugar Bowl win over Auburn, he continued a conversation with his dad that had started earlier in the season about the possibility of moving inside. Pass rushing, DeBerry said, wasn't his strong suit and with Ogbonnia Okoronkwo having one...

OU football journal: Parker works to keep starting spot

NORMAN — Last season, Oklahoma cycled through players at the cornerback spot opposite of Jordan Thomas. The Sooners used three players before settling on freshman Jordan Parker. While he was trying to learn the system and adapt to college football, Parker spent copious amounts of time with Thomas, absorbing everything he could. “J.T. has meant a lot because when I first got here, me and him were just film, film, film every day,” Parker said.Read more on NewsOK.com

Joe Mixon's draft stock on the rise

Joe Mixon's draft stock on the rise

Brooke PryorThere’s never been a question about Joe Mixon’s talent. Instead, Mixon’s draft stock has been determined more by the off-the-field issues than his abilities on the field. When Mixon first declared for the draft in January, pundits listed Mixon as a late-round pick and one NFL scout said that the running back’s incident punching Amelia Molitor in 2014 made him “undraftable.” But with the NFL draft less than a month away, it appears teams are starting to change their opinions of the divisive player.Read more on NewsOK.com

Herm Edwards: Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon deserves a second chance, but I wouldn't draft him

Herm Edwards has seen the NFL from the playing, coaching and analyst sides. He's seen what the league requires of its players, and then as head coach for the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs, he's been the one who needed to enforce those requirements.Edwards said he takes that standard seriously. And for that reason, he wouldn't draft Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon. The 2017 draft prospect is considered by some a first-round talent but severely fractured a woman's face with his punch in 2014."For me personally, if I was coaching, I wouldn't draft him," Edwards said Thursday before...

OU football journal: Brown's weight is one of the talks of OU's spring camp

Junior college wide receiver Marquise Brown is a candidate to step in for the departed Dede Westbrook as Baker Mayfield's go-to target in Oklahoma's offense. But when the first spring roster was released, Brown's size drew attention because he was listed at just 148 pounds. Not long after, though, an OU strength and conditioning coach, through a spokesman, said Brown was up to 157 pounds. Sooners coach Bob Stoops said too much was made of the weight anyway. “I don't really care,” Stoops said.Read more on NewsOK.com

Oklahoma spring football breakout candidate No. 4: Can Will Sunderland fill Ahmad Thomas' shoes in 2017?

SEATTLE (AP) -- At this point, the records are just a blur for Kelsey Plum. They get cross off so quickly there is no opportunity for appreciation. But the final time she walked off her home floor on Monday night, after scoring 38 points and lifting Washington into the regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament, that's the moment that will be lasting for Plum. Not the latest accolade on the resume of her career. "What I'm going to remember from this night was the win, the feeling with my teammates. That's it," Plum said.
