One of the Sooners' earliest offers for the Class of 2014 was Newton, Texas, athlete Kevin Shorter. The 6-foot, 188-pound prospect holds offers from several schools, including OU, Texas A&M, Georgia and others. W.T. Johnston, Shorter's coach at Newton, spoke of what makes Shorter special, what position he mighy play in college, and where the Sooners might stand.
SoonerNation: What separates Shorter from some of the other players in the area?
W.T. Johnston: He's a very good competitor. He has a lot of confidence in himself and he's a mature kid. He's a fast kid, and he runs as fast with his pads on as he can with them off; that separates him from a lot of kids right there.
