Signing as a Sooner: No. 4

NORMAN, Okla. — OU's second Houston area signee checks in here.

Signing Time: 7:36 a.m. Ranking: Three-star

Signee: Christian Daimler (OT—6'7"/280)—Although OU missed out on some of the prospects it wanted, it still really made its hay flipping some guys. Here is another one of those. Houston (Texas) Stratford HS's Daimler originally committed to Arizona State before switching mid-December to OU upon receiving that offer. He's ranked 43rd at his position and could really come in and be a good player for Bruce Kittle.

What he's coming into at the position: Tackle might not be the deepest position on the team, but it's one of the most secure. With Daryl Williams and Tyrus Thompson returning as the likely starters, Derek Farniok and Nathan Hughes are set to back it up. Then, there's Daimler and Josiah St. John, who could easily be the third guy in the rotation after coming in from the junior college ranks. Daimler won't be a regular in the rotation.
