OU Class of 2014: Fullback

OU looked far and wide to find its new fullback, but the Sooners got what they were looking for in Dimitri Flowers.

Oklahoma finished its Class of 2014 with 26 signees and the top-rated Scout class for the Big 12 conference.

Over the next week, Sooners Illustrated is going to look back at the class and let the OU coaches help explain why fans should be excited.


Dimitri Flowers

Throughout the summer and most of the fall OU fans were wondering where the Sooners were going to find that next fullback. That next jack-of-all-trades player like Trey Millard. Turns out OU had to look toward San Antonio with Flowers. A quick courting process resulted in a commitment, and he enrolled early. Getting to campus early is huge in terms of him starting to understand the schemes, but he's going to be vital going forward. If not this year, then certainly in 2015 and beyond

Coaches corner

"Dimitri Flowers is a fullback and a guy who reminds us very much of Trey Millard and that is a huge compliment to him. He is the first guy in about four years that we have said that about." – OU coach Bob Stoops

"He played wildcat quarterback at his school. He can line up on the line of scrimmage. He can line up out as a wide receiver, he can run the ball as a tailback. He really did everything for his team. He's thick enough and big enough to develop into a guy that can do some blocking from the fullback position." – OU tight ends coach Jay Boulware
