During the summer months, SoonerNation will take a closer look at each player on Oklahoma’s roster in our Crimson Countdown series. Each day, we will analyze each player’s impact on the program since arriving on campus, his potential impact this fall and his long-term impact. Starting with No. 1 Kendal Thompson, the series will follow the roster numerically through our final analysis of No. 99 Chaz Nelson.
No. 25 Aaron Franklin
Linebacker, 6-foot-1, 217 pounds, junior
Impact thus far: Franklin has been a solid role player during his first two seasons and should see his impact increase over the next two years. He’s played in 22 career games amassing 23 tackles including one tackle for loss and one sack. Franklin played a special teams role both seasons and saw his role on defense expand as a sophomore.
