OU Countdown: PL Lindley

Depth linebacker has been a consistent contributor for Sooners

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. 40 – LB P.L. Lindley (6-foot-2, 267 pounds)

3 tackles

What happened last year: An option on special teams, Lindley has played in 27 games during the past three years.

Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 2. Lindley’s best chance to help Oklahoma would be on special teams as a wedge buster. Although, there are plenty of other options to fill that hole.

Best-case scenario for this season: Like many other players before Lindley on the countdown, the linebacker’s best real chance to make an impact is to become a fan favorite on special teams. A big tackle, a blocked kick, maybe a touchdown: These are the things that Lindley would hope for this season.
