Sizing up OU recruiting: 2015 OT

Offensive tackle came together late for OU's 2014 class, but the Sooners are already starting off well for 2015.

You've had more than a month to digest Oklahoma's stellar Class of 2014. And with both junior days in the books, the crystal ball is starting to become a little clearer for OU's 2015 class.

It's time to look at the early offers and where OU stands. For some, it's great. For others, the door is closed and both sides have moved on.

This is not the Wish List, which will return to in April. Instead this is examining all offers at the position and listed in order of Scout's rankings.

Offensive tackle

The Sooners closed about as strong as you possibly can at tackle to close out the 2014 class but that shouldn't impact OU's 2015 class.

OU already has one in the fold for the class, but it certainly appears like the Sooners will aim to add two more to the group.

Apopka (Fla.) High's Martez Ivey (6-5, 281, No. 1 OT)

Too early to see if OU is a player here. Same school as Ty Darlington and OU offer Chandler Cox so we'll see if that makes a difference. Ivey and Cox are good friends.

Houston Westfield's Toby Weathersby (6-5, 280, No. 4 OT)

Was a three-star prospect when he visited OU for junior day, now Weathersby is ranked No. 4 in the country. There was a feeling he might commit when he visited Norman, especially because of his bond with OU commit Du'Vonta Lampkin. He didn't, but OU made a good impression.

Allen (Texas) High's Bobby Evans (6-5, 270, No. 6 OT)

About as solid a commit as you can get. His father played basketball at OU. His older brother, Tay, signed with the Sooners in February. There is absolutely no question about Evans' commitment at this point, and it gives OU a great foundation for the class.

Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton's Matthew Burrell (6-6, 285, No. 7 OT)

Haven't heard much either way with Burrell, who has an offer from who's who in college football.

Memphis (Tenn.) University School's Drew Richmond (6-6, 290, No. 11 OT)

Released a top 10 last week and OU didn't make the cut.

Brooksville (Fla.) Nature Coast's Christian Pellage (6-7, 271, No. 13 OT)

OU joined the race last month as Pellage racked up one top offer after another. Nothing to report until he makes a visit.

Herriman (Utah) High's Andre James (6-5, 265, No. 14 OT)

OU has made an imprint in Utah, and the Sooners are in great early position for James. OU coaches Bill Bedenbaugh and Jerry Montgomery have done well in the area and have targeted James as the next Utah transplant.

Rockwall (Texas) Heath's Trevor Elbert (6-6, 290, No. 17 OT)

OU couldn't make a dent here as Elbert is firm with his Texas A&M commitment.

Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus' Keaton Sutherland (6-5, 260, No. 24 OT)

OU is doing fine with Sutherland. The Sooners were able to get him on campus during the fall and once again for junior day. Bedenbaugh has made a strong impression on Sutherland, and the Sooners figure to be in the mix for a while.

Cincinnati Winton Woods' George Brown (6-6, 253, No. 41 OT)

Brown has been talking a trip to OU for a long time now. His timeline has been looking at a trip for spring practice so we'll see if he is able to make the trek in the next month.
