BRANDON KEITH, OT, 6'6, 325, 5.1, McALESTER, OK:
Keith has been so impressive that the many colleges feel he is one of the best natural talents in the country. Many coaches feel he is one of the top offensive lineman in the nation. Keith will be a two-year starter at offensive tackle, but he will also line up at times on the defensive side of the ball. Keith averaged grading out at 90 percent up front last season and six pancakes a game.
Keith can bench 385 pounds and squats 540. Keith attended the Tulsa team camp last summer and this summer he will go to the OU individual camp. Keith is also thinking about going to the Missouri and Arkansas camps.
Grades are Keith's only issue as he has a long way to go, however he is not totally out of it. His academics has kept some schools form offering him a scholarship, but he has his eye on some of the best in the country.
"I really like OU, Missouri, Kansas State and UCLA," said Keith. "OU is my favorite and I am hoping things work out with them. Coach Stoops has told me that if I can pick my grades up that they will offer me a scholarship, so I am going to work very hard in the classroom to take care of business."
Keith says he needs to do some makeup work to get his grades back in order.
