Tulsa Spring Depth Chart: Defense

Image unavailable osqizb
As on offense, Tulsa will have competitions going at several defensive positions during spring practice. Starters return at safety and corner, but fresh faces will have to step up this spring at linebacker and along the defensive line.
This depth chart, released by Tulsa's sports information department, is just a starting point for spring practice. Expect constant shifting throughout spring drills, as players jockey for spots at their position.
The most watched position on defense might be middle linebacker, as Tulsa looks for someone to fill the shoes of the departed Curnelius Arnick. TU head coach Bill Blankenship said senior DeAundre Brown will get a hard look in the middle due to the progress of DeWitt Jennings at CANE linebacker.
