High Noon Highlights(7/31): Tyron Johnson impressing at Texans camp

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

NFL: Houston Texans-Training Camp Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Tyron Johnson has mad a good impression on his coach:

Former Oklahoma State wide receiver Tyron Johnson has had a good training camp. This has gotten the attention of Texans head coach Bill O’Brien.

“Good speed, hard worker, out here every day,” coach Bill O’Brien said of the 6-1 wideout Monday at Methodist Training Center. “You can see why he was a productive guy at State.”

What has helped Johnson adjust to the speed of the NFL, at least what he has been exposed to thus far, is his ability to stay on the practice field.

“With all those guys, it’s so new,” said O’Brien. “There’s so much more man coverage and different coverages and route adjustments. If they’re out here every day, they have a chance.

When you’re not out here every day — availability equals dependability. So, if you’re not out here every day, it’s hard when you’re a younger player. I think he’s worked very hard to try to improve.” {TexansWire.com}

Spencer Sanders keeping himself in the quarterback race:

The Dallas Morning News got some Oklahoma State players to talk about Spencer Sanders and what sets him apart.

They never competed in high school, but Wallace, a Fort Worth South Hills graduate, scouted a game ahead -- to a potential second-round matchup with Ryan -- during the 2016 playoffs. The film left him pleased he would be teammates, not foes, with Sanders in college.

Center Johnny Wilson, a Midland Christian graduate, needed to just one warm-up session of catch with Sanders to agree.

The passes were lighter and shorter than the heave Sanders wowed Wallace with this summer, but Wilson said his hands hurt by the time the two were ready to play.

”Raw -- it’s just like no effort,” Wilson said. “Spencer can rocket a ball in there.” {Dallas Morning News}
