Aaron Colvin Improves His Draft Status

Posted: Updated:

University of Oklahoma senior cornerback Aaron Colvin and the Sooners are off for the next few days, but will arrive in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl on Friday December the 27th.

The Owasso native will be playing his final game for the Sooners and he should be close to full speed when Oklahoma takes on Alabama.

OU Head Coach Bob Stoops thinks Aaron's return for his senior year has helped his chances at the next level.

"Aaron has been a major factor in our defensive improvement this year." said Stoops, "His return this year I believe has really helped him. His draft prospects, I know everyone who has been coming through here has been paying special attention to him.  So hopefully that happens for him.  I believe it will."

The #11 Sooners will face the #3 Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl Thursday, January the 2nd in New Orleans.
