Things never really end with recruiting and we have evidence of that tonight as the Sooners picked up a big (literally) addition to the class of 2015 in defensive end Austin Roberts 6-6/265. We've now been able to confirm the initial report of Roberts commitment through Eric Bailey of the Tulsa World.

Roberts chose the Sooners over Nebraska. He is an interesting recruit in that he has committed late and will join the Sooners for the class of 2015. According to Roberts on twitter he will arrive at OU in July, provided that he takes care of the last few classes he has at NEO.

While information at this point is scarce for Roberts, here is his player page at NEO: Austin Roberts
Also, here is a short highlight film of Roberts in action.
