Signing as a Sooner: No. 15

NORMAN, Okla. — OU's first Norman signee since 2007 checks in, leaving just three to go.

Signing Time: 9:39 a.m. Ranking: Three-star

Signee: Jordan Evans (OLB—6'3"/210)—The local Norman North HS product stands as the lone linebacker signee for the class. He recently got a ratings bump from a two-star to three-star within the last few months leading up to Signing Day. Evans returned four kickoffs for touchdowns in 2012, so that should display his playmaking ability not just as a linebacker, but as an overall football player. He's the No. 45 outside linebacker prospect who could turn into a big time player given his heart and passion play-in and play-out.

What he's coming into at the position:This is the area of least depth on the team. OU only has five total scholarship linebackers even including Evans. Starters figure to be Corey Nelson and Frank Shannon, with Aaron Franklin and Eric Striker filling in behind. But Evans will play his freshman season and it could be in a bigger role than some think.
