Sugar Bowl Aftermath | Oklahoma Sooners Add 2015 DT Commit

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Coming off possibly the best win of the Bob Stoops era, the Oklahoma Sooners appear to be gaining momentum in the recruiting race. Following the victory, Oklahoma native Marquise Overton out of Jenks High School phoned the coaching staff on Friday afternoon.  As a life long Sooner fan, this 6-1 305lb defensive tackle took his name off the market with a verbal commitment to Oklahoma as reported by Demetric Warren of Varsity Preps.

Seeing that big win they had against Alabama and their improvement on defense especially how Coach Montgomery has the defensive line playing. - Marquise Overton via Varsity Preps

Currently, "Que" is consensus 4-star recruit and ranked as a top 15 defensive tackle nationally. SBNation's Recruiting Site has done an excellent job as breaking down his strengths as well as highlighting areas of improvement. Here is a small snippet of the full article...

An undersized defensive tackle at 6'1, Overton is powerful out of his lower body, as evidenced by his ability to roll through his hips and to get a strong punch on opposing offensive linemen, as well as a solid vertical leap of 24 inches at the Dallas NIke Camp last spring.

If the initial punch for Overton isn't enough, he can keep working his hands on his bullrush to displace opponents and eventually separate to make plays. The bullrush is easily Overton's favorite move and his upper body strength combines with the power out of his legs to make him an irresistible force for many interior linemen at the high school level. - SBNation's Wescott Eberts
