Triple option: 5 players to watch

Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. Spring practice begins Monday, and here are five players I'll be keeping an eye on: S Bennett Okotcha, WR Trey Metoyer, LBs Kellen Jones and Frank Shannon, OT Lane Johnson.

2. Could Okotcha be OU's answer to its woes at safety? Perhaps. Kameel Jackson raved about Okotcha on Twitter recently, and Okotcha came to OU with big-time credentials. He was committed to Notre Dame until the Sooners got him to flip days before signing day last year.

3. One big key for the offense will be the left tackle position. I believe the Sooners will audition Johnson there this spring, though I find many people disagree with me. My counter is, if not Johnson, then who? Daryl Williams? Will Latu? Johnson's skill set (quick feet, good hands) seem to be an ideal fit for left tackle. I could be proven wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.
