Gresham’s raw talent impressesPosted: August 26, 2006
Someone went around the room after a recent Oklahoma football practice and asked about freshman tight end Jermaine Gresham.Sooner strong safety Keenan Clayton took a deep breath and simply said, “Man.”
Free safety Darien Williams mustered two words — “that dude” — before shaking his head and going quiet for a bit.
Middle linebacker Zach Latimer smiled and just started laughing.
Sometimes it isn’t what they say, but what they don’t. Gresham, a 6-7 250-pounder with sub-4.5 speed and a violent streak, has left those who have tried tackling him the past three weeks nearly speechless.
