Position change for Greenwood

After spending the past two years with the Oklahoma State receiving corps, LC Greenwood has changed positions to linebacker.

Greenwood, a third-year sophomore, played in three games last season but didn’t record any statistics. He was Scout’s No. 21 wide receiver prospect out of high school but also played linebacker.

“He came in and wanted to make the move,” Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said. “He felt like that maybe he had hit a dead end at the wideout spot, so he wanted to make a move to the other side of the ball.”

Asked how the transition has been going, Gundy said: “It’s too early to tell. He’s just trying to get lined up right now. We should know a lot more three weeks into August.”

Moore targeted frequently

Former Union wideout C.J. Moore was thrown to multiple times during Saturday’s Orange Blitz, a sign that he will be an active member of the receiving rotation next season.

“I think he’s gained 30 pounds, so his body’s changed,” Gundy said. “He’s learning to handle it with body control and all the things the guys that play wideout here have to do in order to be successful. He’s growing into his body and learning.

“He’s going to need another year to where you can just say we’re going to leave you in there for 55-60 plays a game and play at a high level. I don’t know that he’ll be ready for that, but he should be able to give us a number of plays early in the year and we’ll see how he develops in live situations.”

Big recruiting opportunity

With only 11 other FBS teams hosting their spring game Saturday and none from the Big 12, the Orange Blitz provided a chance for recruits to attend. It is believed 70-80 high school athletes attended the practice as guests of OSU.
