Highly coveted junior college defensive tackle Quincy Russell still hasn’t arrived in Norman, but Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops expects that to change this week.

“From what I understand all work is finished and handed in and we’re just waiting for the schools to make sure, however they do it, process it all and we’re hopeful that’s any day now,” Stoops said.

Stoops also said he expects the former juco All-American to be physical ready to play when he arrives and shouldn’t need much extra work to get to playing speed.

“I don’t want to say it’s easy to learn (the defensive tackle position) but basically it’s just about technique and the learning part of it, what he needs to do, he’ll learn that fairly quickly,” Stoops said. From what we understand visiting with him and people he’s worked with, he’s worked really hard and is in really good shape. If that’s the case, he’ll pick it up rather quickly.”
