The recruiting train continues as the Sooners have landed a verbal commitment from class of 2016 JUCO OL Bennett Powers 6-5/315. Powers tweeted out his commitment announcement with the following tweet.
Powers has seen his recruitment take off over the past few weeks picking up offers from TCU, TTech, KSU, Illinois, and the Sooners. He is a unique recruit in that he was a full qualifier out of high school which means he is eligible to transfer after his freshman year. That means he can redshirt and still have 3 years of eligibility. As far as the kind of player the Sooners are getting, Scout.com says that he is in the mix to be the #1 ranked Guard/Center in their JUCO rankings.
Here is short clip of Powers in action.
