Redshirt senior defensive tackle Jordan Wade only started one game in 2015 but saw action in all thirteen contests for the Sooners, recording 23 tackles and a sack. He recorded a personal best five tackles in the Orange Bowl against Clemson and will be looking to have a career year in 2016.
At 6-3/311, Wade has the frame to be a showstopper up the middle and the Sooners will most certainly need to use his experience and size. A native or Round Rock, Texas, Jordan Wade was a consensus 4-star prospect, coming out of high school, by ESPN, 247 Sports, and Rivals. For his Oklahoma Sooners football career he has recorded 49 total tackles (4 for loss), 3 sacks, a fumble recovery, and a pass break up.
