A key piece to the Oklahoma defense could be facing a suspension after being arrested on Sunday.
Oklahoma All-Big 12 defensive lineman Isaiah Thomas wason charges of a DUI and petty larceny.
Thomas is heading into his redshirt senior season with the Sooners after having a breakout season in 2020. In his freshman and sophomore seasons, he combined for just 11 tackles and two sacks.
Last season, he led the team in both sacks with 7.5 and tackles for loss with 13 while playing both defensive tackle and end. He also added a total of 32 tackles en route to anselection.
Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 54 Jacob Lacey, junior defensive tackle
Jacob Lacey's shoulder has limited his career thus far. Finding some health will be a key for Notre Dame's defensive interior for years to come.CAREER TO DATE Though his shoulder first started bothering him in 2019, Lacey still played in 11 games as a freshman, making 14 tackles with 1.5 for loss.
Isaiah Thomas could now be a key piece that is missing at the beginning of Oklahoma's 2021 season
Thomas was a four-star recruit out of Tulsa, Oklahoma in the class of 2017 and looks to be a key piece of an Oklahoma team that looks to contend for a Big 12 title and a national championship behind star quarterback Spencer Rattler in 2021.
Thomas also will be looking to build on his breakout season in 2021 and earn himself a spot on an NFL roster in 2022.
Depending on a potential suspension, he could be up to miss some crucial games at the start of the season, including their season opener against Tulsa on Sept. 4, their home matchup with old Big 12 rival Nebraska on Sept. 18, and their Big 12 opener at home against West Virginia on Sept. 25.
Only time will tell what will come of this situation, but Lincoln Riley has shown action in disciplining players in the past.
Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 52 Zeke Correll, junior, starting center
Brian Kelly spent part of spring practices challenging junior center Zeke Correll to re-earn his starting role, and Correll responded by doing so.CAREER TO DATE Correll nominally played in four games as a freshman in 2019, but he was so dramatically underweight — needing to add at least 20 pounds before being a viable contributor — those were all uncompetitive moments.
This is obviously not as extreme as that incident, but his charges of a DUI and petty theft lead one to believe that Thomas could be facing a suspension from Oklahoma soon.

Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 33 Shayne Simon, senior linebacker .
Shayne Simon shined in Notre Dame's Blue-Gold Game this spring, a development that can possibly be traced directly to the new Irish defensive scheme.NAME, IMAGE, LIKENESS The Irish focus this spring on hyping their players in as many ways as possible, more so than program-centric approaches in the past, extended all the way to the defensive analysts, and that is a testament to both Notre Dame’s intention and its implementation of it.
