Sooners Get Four Star Tight End In Commitment #19

Oklahoma is just a day away from the 2011 college football season drawing to a close when they play Iowa in the Insight Bowl. After the clock hits zero in the fourth quarter Oklahoma will be without any tight ends going into the spring. Seniors James Hanna and Trent Ratterree will have played their final game, Austin Haywood left the team and Max Stevenson suffered a career ending injury. To say that the Sooners are thin at the tight end position would be a massive understatement.

The coaching staff has been hot on the recruiting trail to find an immediate answer to fill the void and they may have done so in Taylor McNamara who became Oklahoma's 19th commitment of the 2012 recruiting season.

Oklahoma has already received commitments from Laith Harlow and junior college transfer Brannon Green but they're both in the mold of Brody Eldridge as powerful blocking tight ends but aren't necessarily known as passing threats. That's where McNamara comes in. At 6-5/235 Rivals and ESPN both have him listed as a four star recruit with Rivals also giving him the ranking as the second best tight end prospect in the nation.

McNamara turned down offers from sixteen other schools including USC, Florida State, Ohio State and Michigan to come to Oklahoma. He plans to enroll early and be on campus in two weeks for the spring semester and will go through spring drills with the Sooners.
