2010 DT First Sooner Commit!!!

After a successful junior day visit last weekend Flower Mound Marcus defensive tackle Dan Noble has made the decision to make a commitment to the University of Oklahoma…

Daniel Noble, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound defensive tackle from Marcus High in Flower Mound, Texas is the first 2010 player to make a commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners.

"I didn't even know I was the first until they told me," Noble said with a laugh. "It is pretty cool I guess."

"I was interested in them ever since they offered me. I went to the junior day this Saturday and I just like everything they had, all of the coaches, and all of the facilities that they had."

"It is just a great place!"

We are hearing this more and more, but the weight room at OU is one of the facilities that really caught Noble's eye.

"They brought us in to the weight room and I liked how it was actually a little bit smaller than everyone else's," Noble stated. "They are able to bring guys in in smaller groups of around 15 and the trainer is able to give them more hands on attention."

Noble was also high on Ohio State and Texas, but in the end it was the Sooners that won out.

"I had been down to UT a few times and I just like OU a lot and feel it was the best choice for me."

Noble does not try to pattern his game after any one player, but he does feel like he brings a blue collar work ethic to the table.

"I don't like to base my game off of any one player," Noble admitted. "I feel like I am a big power guy on the inside that will stuff the run. I play tough. I am not a guy that is going to come off the edge with finesse. I like to work hard."
