Sizing up OU recruiting: 2015 special teams

Looking at all of OU's 2015 offers concludes with a first glance at special teams.

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.

Special teams

As of this time, OU hasn't made any official offers at special teams, but there's no doubt coach Jay Boulware has spotted the kicker he wants.

Rowlett (Texas) High kicker Andrew Galitz was the only kicker at either of OU's junior days. The Sooners waited on an offer as Boulware said he wants to see Galitz kick during the spring before making the decision.

Not an uncommon thing to say, but the interest in Galitz has been picking up like crazy in the last month. If a top-tier school like LSU or Texas A&M make the offer, nobody would question Galitz if he decides to jump on that offer instead.

It does feel like a mere formality with the OU offer, but you never know. With Michael Hunnicutt being a senior, OU is certainly looking to find "Moneycutt's" replacement.

The Sooners took an unusual route and offered long snapper Wesley Horky for the 2014 class so that position is locked up, and if all goes well, it's obvious punter Jack Steed is in line to take over for Jed Barnett.

Kicker is another issue, and OU will certainly need to fill the spot. Whether it's with Galitz or another prospect down the road, it's going to be vital for the Sooners.
