Is Sooners Weekend Visitor Marcel Southall the Next Charles Walker?

Every year there are a handful of recruits in a class that you can tell have a chance to be special. This year is no exception and in spite of a 3 star ranking Duncanville, TX star Marcel Southall (6-3/270) fits the bill. Southall hasn't gone unrecognized as he holds offers from Bama, Ark, Baylor, Florida, KSU, Ole Miss, Mizzou, Nebraska, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, TTech, and the Sooners.

And while the list of suitors for Southall is long, this should be a battle the Sooners can and should win. Southall will be in Norman this weekend and could quite possibly leave Norman as a part of the Sooners class of 2016.

Want to know why Southall's talent is immense, then look no further than his highlight tape.

There are several things that stick out on his film

1. In spite of already weighing north of 270, Southall is a more than capable rusher off the edge. In the Sooners 3-4 defense, Southall should be able to carry 290+ and not lose much of his athleticism and burst.

2. Southall motor doesn't stop. With his pursuit and lateral quickness he has the potential to stay with much quicker players.
