Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

We are smack dab in the dogs days of summer, but football season will be here before you know. Today the countdown rolls on at 45 and we will look at one of the lesser know Sooners who should begin to show up and make an impact this season going forward.

HB/FB Carson Meier (6-5-245) is a redshirt sophomore for the Sooners. If you are looking for Meier he will be wearing 45 this fall. Rivals.com ranked Meier as a 3 star recruit from Tulsa Union High School. He choose the Sooners over offers from Duke, KSU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Rice, Rutgers. SMU, Washington State, and Wisconsin.

Meier redshirted in 2014 and made an appearance in all 13 Sooner football games last season. He was named to the Academic All-Big 12 1st team. Look for Meier to show up in spots this season, most likely on special teams and jumbo packages.
