Focus 2010: Irwin Holds One Offer

Mustang offensive lineman Bronson Irwin is off to a fast start with recruiting. He already holds one official offer and a number of other top programs are starting to show him some serious interest. He will be at the Red River Rivalry game this weekend as a guest of the Sooners.

Bronson Irwin, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive lineman from Mustang High in Okla., helped his teammates to a big homecoming win over Lawton High last Friday night.

"It was a big win," Irwin began. "I don't think we won necessarily how we wanted to win. We wanted to execute as well as we could. We had a couple of turnovers. We got the big win and that is all that really matters."

"We need to get our offense going, minimize turnovers, and protect our quarterback. We have our back-up quarterback in there and we need to keep the protection going."

Irwin is trying to develop his game to get some good scholarship offers, but he admits there is not one player in particular that he grew up watching.

"Not really," Irwin answered when asked if he had a hero on the offensive line. "I am just out here doing the best I can. I just want to keep the best I can to get some attention and help our team win."

Irwin already has a host of schools coming after him, but it seems like the in-state schools are showing him the most interest.

"I have been talking to OU," Irwin stated. "Tulsa has offered me a scholarship already. Texas Tech, OSU, Clemson, Colorado, and some schools like that. There are a bunch of them."

"It was awesome to get an offer from Tulsa. It happened after camp this summer. I was excited. Me and Coach (Herb) Hand talk a lot. He is a really good guy."

Oklahoma and Tulsa are the two schools that have really caught his eye and he will be a guest of OU at the Red River Rivalry game this weekend.

"I have been an OU fan all my life. Every in-state schools is undefeated, so they are all doing great. I really like OU. I like their O-Line and I really like Tulsa as well."

"I have been to Tulsa, OU, and OSU already and I plan to go to the OU/Texas game actually. I have tickets for that."
