100% Orange Juice: Catching up with Shaun Lewis, Cowboys offer Austin Pope


Welcome to another edition of your morning Orange Juice!

Feel free to visit our unlimited bagel bar as well. If you are an NCAA athlete, I’m sorry, but we can only give you 3.222 bagels… and a teaspoon of cream cheese. It’s the rules. 

So come sit down, butter that toast, grab your laptop and fill that glass with cold, tasty OJ. Remember if the glove doesn’t fit….. you must read our blog. I think that’s how it goes.

Shaun Lewis, one of the best linebackers to play under Mike Gundy, recently signed a three-year rookie minimum contract with Green Bay. This week, Lewis sat down with NewsOK to answer some questions about what’s happened so far and his future.

"The biggest surprise to me was just how down to earth the players are here. You have to commend the Packers for creating an environment where the players become almost like brothers here and they bring in new players with open arms.

Austin Pope,  a point guard from North Idaho College, has received an offer from the Cowboys to join the 2015 commitment class. Pope makes the 6th point guard offered by Travis ford and Oklahoma State. So… we definitely know what Travis Ford wants.

"I think Pope would be a solid sixth man off the bench in his first year, and become a formidable starter at point in his second and final year of eligibility. It is obvious that Travis Ford is trying to strengthen this position over all other positions on the squad, and depending on the players that are brought in, that can either be a great strength, or a grave weakness."
