Welcome to OU: Austin Kendall, Logan Roberson, Chanse Sylvie

A look at OU's mid-year enrollees from high school: Austin Kendall, Logan Roberson and Chanse Sylvie

School isn’t officially in session for Oklahoma until Tuesday so there could still be some last-minute surprises for the Sooners.

But all the recruits known as mid-year enrollees are all headed to Norman on Thursday to start the next chapter and their time at OU.

Sooners Illustrated examines the mid-year high school prospects officially signed as Sooners.

Waxhaw (N.C.) Cuthbertson QB Austin Kendall (No. 19 QB)

The Intel: Kendall was the first sign in the 2016 class that offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley had arrived. A one-time Tennessee commit, it became clear in March that Kendall was the No. 1 priority for the little known Riley. After one season in Norman, it’s now readily apparent why OU wanted Riley and now we’ll get to see exactly why Riley wanted Kendall. Never batted an eye when OU took the transfer of Kyler Murray, Kendall is ready to compete and excited to arrive in Norman.

Harrah (Okla.) High OL Logan Roberson (No. 72 OG)

The Intel: Sometimes all it takes is one day. For Roberson, that one day was OU’s elite camp back in June where Roberson was better than he had ever been before. He was offered 48 hours later and committed right then and there. Since that time, his confidence has only grown as he hopes to be the latest under the radar in-state prospect to shine in Norman. After conversing with trainer and former OU fullback J.D. Runnels, Roberson decided his best course of action was to enroll early.

Shreveport (La.) Calvary Baptist S Chanse Sylvie (No. 35 S)

The Intel: Sylvie has been OU’s No. 1 recruiter since committing in July. Now he can do all of his recruiting on campus as Sylvie can keep that title in the final three weeks when recruits make their official visits to Norman. Sylvie might indeed stay as a three-star recruit, but anybody who watched his senior film or his performances at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl know full well the Sooners hit the jackpot in landing Sylvie.
