Mensik Will Start on O-Line

The last preseason depth chart may list senior Eric Mensik as the starting tight end, but that's not where he will begin the year.

Offensive coordinator Kevin WIlson said during OU Media Day Friday morning that, as of right now, Mensik will be the starter at the right tackle position when the Sooners open up play against the Utah State Aggies in Norman on Sept. 4.

Senior Cory Brandon, who had trouble with false starts and mental mistakes in the Sooners' 2009 season opener against Brigham Young, was on the depth chart as the starter.

But Wilson said he's a "full time offensive lineman" as of right now.
