OU Countdown: Najee Bissoon

Scout team player of the year looks to take the next step

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.
