Cornerback Aaron Colvin’s decision to return to school gave OU the biggest recruit it could land for next season, but the Sooners would like to add at least one more to go along with Tulsa East Central’s Stavon Moore.
There’s an opening for a tight end if OU can find the right fit. It currently has three on scholarship — senior Brannon Green, redshirt freshmen Sam Grant and Taylor McNamara — but the Sooners are trying to add a fourth via the junior college route.
There remains an opening at linebacker. Norman North’s Jordan Evans and Tulsa Washington’s Dominique Alexander are both committed. But if they’re all OU takes, that will leave just six for next season. The positions weren’t used as much this past season in defensive coordinator Mike Stoops’ scheme. But OU has typically had tried to have at least seven at their disposal.
The numbers can change. OU will add players at positions if they believe there’s a player they can’t pass up. There’s always the chance a couple signing day surprises will fall in OU’s lap on Feb. 6.
