If you had a chance to listen to our latest episode of the Sooner Nation Podcast then you heard me say that linebacker David Ugwoegbu would be the first name to come in on Wednesday morning. That was absolutely correct, but it wasn’t a difficult prediction considering he’d been 100% committed since the middle of last month.
At 6-3/213, Ugwoegbu has great length and could easily fill out his frame with extra muscle weight. He has the ability to be either a linebacker or defensive end for the Sooners and is athletic enough to have been an all-district selection on both sides of the ball (also played tight end).
Rated as a 4-star recruit, Ugwoegbu is the 47th overall ranked player from the state of Texas. He received 21 total scholarship offers but his choice narrowed down to Oklahoma and Texas A&M.
