We are expecting the Sooners to take six linebackers in the class of 2016, and today they received news that 2016 JUCO LB Emmanuel Beal 6-2/220 announced that he was the 4th LB commitment for the class of 2016. Here is the tweet.

Beal should have every opportunity to take the place of former Sooner linebacker, Eric Striker. Beal will have 3 years to play 2, meaning that a redshirt would also be an option. He is the third class of 2016 Sooners commitment from Lackawanna Community College in Scranton, Pennsylvania
Check out Emmanuel Beal's film below and you will notice he has a great first step and has the ability to be a really good pass rusher.
