During the next two months leading up to the Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Sooners Illustrated will breakdown the Oklahoma Sooners’ roster, starting with Dominique Alexander (No. 1 on the roster) and working all the way down to Dwayne Orso (No. 99) and the incoming freshmen.
We’ll look at last year’s performance, the best-case scenario for this season – without projecting injuries – and what each player means to the short-term or long-term success of the Sooners.
No. 14 - CB Marcus Green (6-foot-1, 181 pounds)
What happened last year: Green took a redshirt in his first season and is definitely not transferring from Oklahoma.
Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 2. Depth is important, and that’s exactly what Green will provide. It’s always better to have a capable body, especially one at 6-foot-1, that can make plays with speed.
Best-case scenario for this season: Like most of Oklahoma’s potential top special teamers, Green’s best chance to shine would be by making plays – and maybe even scoring or creating a turnover – in the third phase of the game. Green might see spot time in the defensive back rotation and has a chance to win the No. 3 cornerback spot. He could win that battle in the preseason, but it would take one heck of a camp.
