During the previous recruiting cycle, the Oklahoma Sooners secured a commitment from Derek Green. Eventually signing with the program, the defensive tackle remained the only target at the position. The move spoke volumes of the trust the coaching staff placed in a single entity. Shortly after, Green’s decision wavered leaving OU without a defensive tackle as the prospect entered the transfer portal.
In desperate need of a recruit at the position, the Sooners are set to host a plethora of recruits over the weekend. Yet, none may be more important than Bryan Bresee, a DT out of Damascus, Maryland who confirmed plans to be at the Spring Game back in March.
Uncommitted at this point in time, Bresee is a 5-star recruit holding offers from some of the most prestigious programs from around the country. Toward the end of the year, the 6-5, 290-pound high school junior released his top six potential landing spots. It just so happens that the Sooners were excluded from the list. But, that was before Alex Grinch joined the coach staff as the defensive coordinator.

Relishing the opportunity to visit the campus, the Sooners certainly have their work cut out for them. Could this be the turning point between Oklahoma and Bresee, the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect? Likely to commit at the end of a senior season later this year, the recruit said he’ll pick the place that “feels like home.”
At this current juncture, Oklahoma has yet to earn the commitment of a 2020 defensive tackle.
