FRANK TAMBURELLO, QB
A slick, heady split-T quarterback who can run; handles the ball exceptionally well on the option play. Fair passer but can't throw as well as Sub Lynn Beightol (12).
ED VEREB, LHB
Key man on offense; must stop him to beat Maryland. Good speed, hard runner, likes smash into right side or sweep around end. Good passer and strong pass defense.
BOB PELLEGRINI, C
Big (225), powerful and quick, he's rated best center in country. Great linebacker with ability to diagnose plays. Slight weakness on plays directly at his position.
JIM HARRIS, QB
Doesn't yet rank with great Oklahoma quarterbacks at running option play but reacts very quickly, has good speed. Handles ball well, strong on defense.
TOMMY MCDONALD, LHB
One of greatest halfbacks in nation; has tremendous balance, speed and drive, very elusive. Especially dangerous on punt and kickoff returns. Watch him.
BO BOLINGER, LG
All-America guard—and he really is. Just big enough (208) to be tough and still retain speed. Very quick, blocks hard, strong on defense and always hustles.
