The Oklahoma Sooners followed up a big second half blow out of the Iowa State Cyclones with some big news for the future of the program. The Sooners picked up two big commitments to continue their strong weekend recruiting push.
Ju-co tight end Isaac Ijalana and high school defensive end Dwayne Orso visited the Sooners for this weekend’s game and both players committed after the big win.
Isaac Ijalana is the latest in the Oklahoma Sooners attempt in finding a tight end to work in their offense. In a position that has a tradition of great tight ends such as Jermaine Gresham, James Hanna, Stephen Alexander and Keith Jackson, no one has really done much over the last two seasons in the position.
Ijalana also had offers from Illinois, Akron and Bowling Green, so the Sooners seems like the best offer he received. He played for Lackawanna College in Pennsylvania last season and has two years of eligibility after he graduates from junior college this December.
Dwayne Orso (6-6, 255) is an Alabama product who backed out of a commitment to Western Kentucky to choose the Sooners. He is the 16th commitment for the 2014 class and chose OU over Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee State and UAB. He is said to be a legitimate 6-6 and his high school coach believes he is not finished growing. Some compare his to Charles Tapper.
