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.
