The Oklahoma Sooners received some fantastic news on Sunday night, as JUCO offensive tackle Tramonda Moore announced his intention to play in Norman.

Moore, who played his high school ball in Oklahoma City (John Marshall HS), originally signed with the Oklahoma State Cowboys in February of 2016. However, Moore experienced some academic issues and was forced to take the JUCO route, landing at Independence CC in Kansas. Originally rated as a four-star recruit coming out of high school, he’s continued to show off his skill set and is currently rated as the No. 1 JUCO OT by 247Sports.
Oklahoma State folks were confident that Moore would eventually end up where he originally signed, but that all changed when the Oklahoma staff swooped in with a scholarship offer on Sunday. It would only take him a few hours to make up his mind after that.
At 6-6 and 330 pounds, Moore is an utterly dominant force up front. He’s someone who could step in immediately at tackle in 2018, which would give five-star prospect Brey Walker some time to develop next season. He’s versatile athlete who could also potentially end up at guard for the Sooners. Oklahoma’s offensive line is going to be scary good in 2017, and it’s starting to look like that’ll continue to be the case for years to come!
