Nelson to replace injured Travis Lewis

To replace its defensive captain and top tackler from each of the last three seasons, Oklahoma is turning to a first-time starter who enjoys writing poetry and sings in the church choir.
But Corey Nelson can play football, too.
The sophomore linebacker was coach Bob Stoops' star of spring
practice, and the Sooners opened training camp trying to find ways
to get him on the field. When three-year starter Travis Lewis broke
a toe this week in practice, there was no more need for
experimentation.
Nelson will now be forced into duty, filling in for the Big 12
preseason defensive player of the year while Lewis is out for up to
eight weeks.
