Fair or unfair, it was really never a question of when as much as if with respect to 2014 Irving (TX) defensive tackle Brandon Glenn's (VIDEO) commitment to Oklahoma. Ever since the Sooners extended an offer to the 6'3" 274 pound defender this past Wednesday, he had made it pretty clear it was simply a matter of time before he would pledge to OU.
Glenn made the trip up to Norman back on June 2 for a one day camp the Oklahoma coaches were holding and made enough of an impression that Sooners defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery told him to expect an offer soon. Montgomery followed through on his word and with it the Sooners have landed their first defensive lineman commit in this 2014 class.
While Glenn is currently listed with most recruiting services as a defensive end, virtually everyone who has seen him in action (including Montgomery, obviously) expect him to grow into a defensive tackle.
According to Glenn, the only other school he was really seriously considering was Texas Tech. However, Glenn is currently in Norman for an unofficial visit at the time of this post and obviously saw all he needed to see before making his commitment.
According to Rivals, the only other offers Glenn currently holds are from Houston, Kansas State, and North Texas. But a prospect's offer list does not always make the prospect and if few schools, if any, have a better track record than Oklahoma of sniffing out guys early only to see the college football elite start to show interest late.
Being the first defensive line commitment of OU's 2014 class, it pretty much goes without saying this is new defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery's first commit for his unit as well.
