NORMAN, Okla. -- Two more preseason watch lists were announced Friday morning, and to no surprise,…
Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 6
No. 6: Player: Ben Habern Position: Starting center The rundown: Habern, a two-year letter-winner, is the only starter on the offensive line that started every single game last season. He played at center for all 14 games, leading the team in snaps (1,070) and knockdowns (123). Habern was the team-leader in knockdowns in five games, with a season-high 16 against Colorado. Because of those numbers, the 6-foot-4, 292-pounder earned Associated Press Honorable Mention All-Big 12 in 2010. Expectations for 2011: Habern is a Preseason All-Big 12 selection, and that is both a very realistic and probable expectation. In fact, Sooners Illustrated had the talented junior on the All-Big 12 Team as well. He's also mentioned on the watch list for the 42nd Rotary Lombardi Award presented to the nation's best lineman, so there's some huge expectations not just with the team but nationally. He's an invaluable component of the offensive line the Sooners can't afford to lose if they hope to be as good as they can be offensively.
