The Oklahoma Sooners have added yet another offensive prospect to their 2019 class, as three-star guard Marcus Alexander announced his decision to play college ball in Norman on Tuesday. Alexander visited Oklahoma this past weekend.

Alexander, a Sunnyvale, Texas native, is listed as the No. 32 offensive guard in the country and has offers from Oklahoma State, Missouri, Texas Tech and others. He’s Oklahoma’s 12th commit of the 2019 class and seventh on the offensive side. He’s also one of five DFW offensive prospects committed to OU at the moment, joining Prestonwood’s Austin Stogner, Allen’s Theo Wease and EJ Ndoma-Ogar, and Hebron’s Trejan Bridges.

When looking at the tape, you see a nasty offensive lineman which is especially adept as a run blocker. He’s not necessarily going up against world beaters (Sunnyvale plays 3A football), but the upside and positive attributes are readily apparent. After earning a commitment from highly-touted interior lineman Ndoma-Ogar, Bill Bedenbaugh has supplemented that with an under-the-radar guy who may well end up being a steal.
