According to the 24/7 article, in addition to Oklahoma he had offers from Texas, Oklahoma State, Houston, SMU, Texas State and UTSA. Only played in 2 games in 3 years. But he is a very good student being a grad transfer.

Was listed at 6-3, 272# in the 2020 OU game notes for Games 1 through 4 (until he entered the transfer portal in October).....so probably projects to play the DT/DE position to add needed depth (especially if La'ulu sees more playing time on offense at TE) depending on if Mason Vega (who graduated) and/or Kemon Smith (both never having dressed in 2020) are with the team next season and are healthy & available.

An added boost to the DLine. Could end up being like a Chris Posa type of transfer who was a walkon at a big program, but brought great work ethic and eventually became a starter

Hope this one pans out. I was hoping for a boost to the dline. He looks tobe a run stopper. I guess wewill see when he gets here.
Not doubting, not hating, not loving, just hoping because I am a fan.
