My last post looked at what was needed to fill out the 2014 class. It is safe to say that OU's class has the potential for some major additions over the next few weeks. I figure that there would be no better place to start than on the offensive line. OU has focused in on 3 different prospects that would fill a major need in the 2014 class and here they are.
1. Kenyon Frison 6'8 290 lbs. from West Valley City, Utah. Kenyon is a 3 star recruit on both Rivals and 247sports.
Kenyon is currently committed to Utah, but I would put his commit as the softest of the soft. Several things are in play which would lead to a potential switch. These are:
- The current state of the Utah football program. The Utes are 10-14 over the past two seasons, failing to make a bowl appearance in either season.
- Utah OL coach was just fired:

Frison visited OU back in November. He still has visits left to Arizona State and Nebraska.
Here is a short video clip of Frison in action.

2. Lukayus McNeil 6'7" 270 lbs. from Indianapolis, Indiana. Lukayus is a 3 star recruit on both Rivals and 247sports.
Lukayus is currently committed to Louisville but is also a soft commitment. Charlie Strong's departure to Texas makes his commitment switch possible.
Lukayus visited OU in December.
3. Chukwuma Okorafor 6'6" 285 from Southfield, Michigan. Chukwuma is a 3 star recruit on both Rivals and 247sports.
OU just recently offered Okorafor. This was confirmed by Josh Helmholdt of Rivals.com
Chukwuma is currently committed to Western Michigan, but has offers from the likes of Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, and Arkansas. Time will tell if this commitment sticks, as seemingly Okorafor has much bigger offers on the table.
Here is a short video clip of Okorafor in action.

Any of the above lineman would fill out the OL class nicely. All 3 players have the talent to do big things in Norman.
