In a change of events that is certain to make Sooner fans happy, 2017 center Creed Humphrey (Shawnee, OK) has committed to Oklahoma after previously pledging to Texas A&M.
Humphrey is rated as the No. 3 center nationally as well as the No. 4 overall player in the Sooner State per the 247 Composite Rankings. He is the fifth OU commit of the 2017 class that hails from Oklahoma, joining Justin Broiles (CB, Oklahoma City John Marshall), Tre Brown (CB, Tulsa Union) Levi Draper (LB, Collinsville) and Isaiah Thomas (DE, Tulsa Memorial).
A few things that stand out with Humphrey:
- He has quite the motor for an offensive lineman. His job isn’t done once you’re no longer a threat to make a play - his job is done once you’re on the ground.
- Judging from his defensive highlights, you can see than he moves around incredibly well for a kid of his size.
- Most of his work in the film shows him playing at tackle, but he’s projected as a center at the next level. Based on his size (listed at 6-4, 301), could we see him play a position other than center at the next level? It seems like a possibility.
- He absolutely manhandles a kid from my alma mater at the 2:15 mark. Yikes.
