Oklahoma Sooners Flip Tennessee Commit Orlando Brown Last Second

On National Signing Day, Orlando Brown pulled off one of the biggest surprises. Originally committing to be a Tennessee Volunteers on May 2nd, 2013, he signed his LOI with the Oklahoma Sooners after the program was pegged with a 13% likelihood of signing Brown by 247 Sports.

SBNation's Bud Elliot provided in depth analysis a while back that still applies to this kid.

Brown is plenty capable of moving opposing defenders in the run game. No player in his highlight film can match his size, and he often simply leans on them. He gets into the defender quickly on a few clips, but does not show great quickness overall. The real problem is that he bends at the waist entirely too much and does not roll his hips. He's also not all that adept at picking off defenders in space.

The Sooners secured a major steal as Brown held offers from 39 different schools per Rivals.com. Needless to say, welcome to Sooner Nation Orlando!
