Sooners Illustrated breaks down the Oklahoma roster, one player at a time

Dwayne Orso makes the switch from the defensive line to the offensive line

During the next two months leading up to the Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Sooners Illustrated will breakdown the Oklahoma Sooners roster, starting with Jarvis Baxter (No. 1 on the roster) and working all the way down to Marquise Overton (No. 98) and the incoming freshmen.

We’ll look at last year’s performance, the best-case scenario for this season – without projecting injuries – and what each player means to the short-term or long-term success of the Sooners.


No. 79 – OL Dwayne Orso-Bacchus (6-foot-5, 301 pounds)


What happened last year: Orso served as a depth defensive lineman before making the transition to the offensive line in the off-season.

Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 1. There’s very little chance that Orso sees the field. The coaching staff certainly can’t be expecting much from the big lineman.

Best-case scenario for this season: Orso could wind up as the scout team offensive player of the year, especially if he can give Charles Walker a great look every day in practice.
