Oklahoma's depleted offensive line heading into next year got a big boost on Saturday when four-star junior college offensive lineman Sherrone Moore committed to Oklahoma.
Moore, a 6-foot-5, 310-pounder from Butler County Community College in Kansas, told OUInsider.com Saturday night he picked the Sooners over Arizona State.
"Oklahoma just seemed like the place for me," Moore told James Hale. "Both Arizona State and Oklahoma were great schools.
"I don't know, I just felt like I had a better fit at Okahoma. It's closer to home and I'm more familiar with the area. It just seemed like a better fit to me.
So what kind of factor did OU's lack of depth and graduating class on the line play in his decision?
"That played a big factor," said Moore. "Both schools had a bunch of players that graduated, but Oklahoma has more of a young offensive line returning so I think I can be more of a factor there."
Moore is an early junior college graduate who will be able to go through spring practice.
"It's going to help me learn the system, learn how to do things Oklahoma's way," said Moore on getting a head start in January. "It will get me right in the to competitive frame right away. I think they will start me out at tackle, so I look forward to getting in and competing right away."
