Sophomore defensive back "Bookie" Radley-Hiles before the game against South Dakota Sept. 7.

Oklahoma sophomore defensive back Brendan "Bookie" Radley-Hiles was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week after his performance against South Dakota Saturday. 

Radley-Hiles was a ballhawk against the Coyotes, recovering a fumble in the second quarter and returning an interception for a touchdown in the third. 

A former five-star recruit out of IMG Academy, Radley-Hiles was expected to be one of the best players on the Sooners' roster last year. After an up-and-down freshman season, he looks primed for a breakout season his sophomore year. 

Radley-Hiles and Oklahoma will be back in action against UCLA at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday, Sept. 14 in Pasadena, California.
