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. 38 – S Najee Bissoon (5-foot-7, 161 pounds)
What happened last year: A transfer and the shortest player on the Oklahoma roster, Bissoon was named Oklahoma Scout Team Defensive Player of the Year last season.
Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 2. Another year on the scout team – or maybe a year as a gunner on special teams – is in the works for Bissoon. Based on his contribution in practice, Bissoon is clearly a leader that Oklahoma could use.
Best-case scenario for this season: A step up for Bissoon would obviously be becoming a contributor on special teams because it’s extremely unlikely that he would play in any capacity on defense.
