In The Fold – OL Jeff Vinson Joins 2009 OU Recruiting Class

New, 5 comments

With the majority of Oklahoma’s offensive line heading to the NFL at the end of this season its obvious that the focus of this recruiting season should be on the big guys up front. After landing three highly touted linemen in last year’s class junior college recruit Jeff Vinson becomes OU’s third o-line commit for the 2009 class. Vinson is 6-6, 348lbs and is ranked as a three star recruit by Rivals.

Depending on what Sam Bradford decides to do Oklahoma should have the pieces in place to make a run at their 4th consecutive Big 12 championship. Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray will both return along with slot receiver Ryan Broyles who will no doubt take a bigger role in the offense. There are rumors that Jermaine Gresham is leaning towards returning but I’ll believe that when I hear it come from his mouth.

 

On the defensive side of the ball they return Gerald McCoy and most likely DeMarcus Granger. Linebackers are all young and the corners will both return as well. The safeties will be replaced next season  but the bottom line is that everything next season will hinge on Oklahoma’s offensive line.
