Oklahoma Sooners CB Aaron Colvin had a monster performance last weekend against Texas Tech in the 38-30 win that knocked the Red Raiders from the ranks of the unbeatens. Colvin was such a terror, not even his head coach, Bob Stoops, could stay out of his way:
Indeed, Aaron Colvin has been one of the more impressive Sooners over the past few years. He started at safety in 2011 and has since started 20 of the last 21 games at cornerback in Norman.
This year, Colvin has recorded 39 tackles, five for loss, one sack, three pass break-ups, one interception and a fumble recovery. You want to talk about having a nose for the football, #14 on defense for Oklahoma is the epitome of that saying.
Because of his contributions, he’s drawn some high praise from his head coach recently, who even went so far as to say that he’s one of the best ever at the school:
“Aaron is a guy that all the NFL people love,” Stoops said. “He is having a fantastic year. Absolutely a great cover guy, but very smart. Great leader.
“Truly one of the best defensive backs we’ve ever had here, in my time anyway. Very special player.”
We’re going to get a chance in Oklahoma’s next game to see how truly special he is when the Sooners will take on the high-powered Baylor offense.
