The 2016 season will be a year of transition for Oklahoma’s Michiah Quick. After catching 34 passes for 340 yards during his first two seasons in Norman, the 5-11/190 junior from Fresno, California is swapping sides of the field.
Quick began to work out at the cornerback position in the spring and is expected to make the two-deep somewhere in Oklahoma’s secondary this fall. Depth in the secondary isn’t a big issue but it is an issue and Quick is most likely being groomed for a possible starting position in 2017.
Defensive back is a position that Quick played in high school and Bob Stoops is hoping that its also a position in which he’l excel for the Sooners.
“We had actually talked about it in the winter,” Stoops said about Quick’s transition to reporters in June, “but he wanted to stay through the spring and see where he could be. I talked to the offensive coaches about it and I wanted to be sure we took advantage of where he could make the biggest impact.”
