Sooners have defensive end rotation set

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma defensive ends coach Bobby Jack Wright feels good about his starting duo of David King and R.J. Washington.

“David and RJ are having a heckuva camp,” Wright said. “I said in the summer I thought they’d both have a heckuva year and up to this point they are trying to prove me right. I like the way they are working and I think they are going to be two of the better ends in the league.”

Sophomore Chuka Ndulue is giving him confidence that the Sooners will have a quality three-man rotation at the position, at the very least.

“Chuka has probably separated himself from the rest of the pack,” Wright said. “Chuka is a solid third guy.”

The injury to Ronnell Lewis last season could have been a blessing in disguise. Ndulue was forced to progress quicker and earned some playing time in the Insight Bowl which sparked a solid offseason. He has taken that confidence and become a player Wright can count on in 2012.
