Among this past weekend’s largest visitors on campus, Frisco (Texas) native OL Nate Anderson has confirmed his decision and committed to Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners over Florida State, USC, TCU, Arkansas and others.
Anderson is a four-star prospect and he has the ability to fill out his massive frame when he signs his letter of intent later this year. A typical Bill Bedenbaugh monster, Anderson stands tall at 6’5, but a “light” 262lbs (and plenty of room to grow) with very long arms. As an offensive tackle, he has elite athleticism, you can find that in the way he also plays defensive end. The way he flies off of the line of scrimmage as a defensive end and Right Tackle in Frisco (Texas) will continue the narrative of a mean offensive lineman that wants to crush the dreams of other grown men. The man reminds me of Dru Samia— incredibly athletic, can play both tackle or guard.
Nate Anderson is just the latest of Sooner commitments that is expected to happen in the month of May. Recent chatter suggests that Lincoln Riley is looking to manufacture some recruiting momentum going into Summer Ball to keep the Sooner name fresh and running. Anderson is the nation’s No. 139 overall prospect and boosts the Sooners to the 14th spot in recruiting class rankings, Oklahoma is still No. 1 in the Big 12.
