Ronnell Lewis cleared to play for OU

Starting defensive end Ronnell Lewis has been cleared to play for top-ranked Oklahoma this season.
Sooners coach Bob Stoops announced that Lewis was declared
eligible Thursday after what he called a "difficult process."
Lewis' eligibility has been a lingering question for Oklahoma
leading into this season. The decision finally came two days before
the season opener Saturday against Tulsa.
Lewis missed several practices due to what Stoops termed family
issues and one for a friend's funeral.
A converted linebacker, Lewis started the last four games of
last season at defensive end. He finished the season with 37
tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. Defensive coordinator Brent Venables
called the junior "the best defensive end that we have."
