The Oklahoma Sooners are attempting to address a need during the early signing period. Obviously thin at the cornerback position, the program showed interest in over forty defensive backs throughout the recruiting cycle. However, Kendall Dennis became the first signee at the position for the class.
Holding a ceremony at Lakeland High School on December 18th, Dennis officially committed and signed following a few trips to potential universities. Holding offers from across the country, the cornerback picked Oklahoma over the likes of Clemson, Auburn, and Florida State.
Showcasing a knack for pinpointing the ball in traffic, Dennis appears to have the skills necessary for the college level of competition. Behind a 4.40 time in the 40-yard dash, the defensive back also has the ability to stay with receivers down the field. Standing 6-0, 170-pounds the biggest area of improvement is undoubtedly in strength and size. Expect the Sooners to add those characteristics under the direction of Alex Grinch.
