Oklahoma football: Which Sooners are ready to breakout on defense?

With spring football fast approaching, Oklahoma football is set to begin the quest for a fifth-straight Big 12 Championship and its first college football playoff win.

We already looked at the offensive side of the ball in a previous post. Today, we take a look at the defense.

Yes, everyone is aware that the defense was not good as a whole last year and everyone needs to improve as individual players. So while your social media comment of “the whole team, lol” is just as hilarious as you think it is, we going to try and dive a little deeper than that here.

This list is also harder because unlike the offense, the defensive side of the ball brings back nearly everyone (with the exception of Curtis Bolton) in the two deep.

(Just like the first list, no true freshmen will appear. They will get their own list at a later time).

This is a name that has been on a lot of Oklahoma football fans’ minds through the past few months. White was a stud recruit out of Richland, Texas and looks the part of a true sideline-to-sideline roaming linebacker. White looks poised to crack the starting lineup, with the only thing holding him back being three returning starters ahead of him. Still, White’s talent may be too great to hold him off the field and finally unleash what appears to be a special talent on the defensive side of the ball.
