CAMPUS CORNER — Three Sooners were scheduled to be in action today at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis: linebackers Ronnell Lewis and Travis Lewis, as well as defensive end Frank Alexander.
Let’s start with Alexander. The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year curiously tweeted this last night: “Minor setback for a major comeback! Gotta keep my head high and keep on pressing #Godisgood.” He told someone shortly thereafter that he would not be able to participate today.
Alexander played the second half of the 2011 season with a bad shoulder – I believe he said it was a stinger – and it flared toward the end of the season. That could be a culprit, with Alexander and his representation choosing to save any workouts for OU’s March 14 Pro Day. In any case, no Big Frank in Indy.
