Not surprising and well deserved. I wish we had him.

One in a ...
Did everybody on the planet just miss on him or did Tulsa find a DITR, recruit, and phenomenally develop this guy? I am so impressed. Kudos and congrats to you, sir!

He's from someplace called Hominy, Oklahoma, which according to the Googler has less than 4,000 people. I assume that's not a regular stop on the recruiting trail for most coaches.
Plus, he has added +/- 30 pounds since he got to Tulsa, so it's not like he was some world-beating behemoth coming out of high school. TU staff projected and got a great one.
