Sooners Get Unexpected Commitment From Tight End Sam Grant

The Oklahoma Sooners got an unexpected surprise Monday morning when tight end Sam Grant announced that he would be signing with OU after he was long believed to be favoring the Michigan Wolverines.

Crimson and Cream Machine has a breakdown on the latest addition to the Sooners' 2012 class.

"Grant is known more for his blocking skills, which is somewhat rare for a high school tight end, and also must mean it's just a matter of time until Oklahoma turns him into an offensive lineman (inside joke). He displays the ability to use his 6'6" frame to shield off defenders and make catches over the middle of the field. He isn't an elite athlete, so he's not going to make guys miss in the open field after the catch, but he'll fight for those extra yards.

Grant is now the fourth tight end in the Sooners' 2012 class, which might sound like a shocking number until you consider that Oklahoma had zero returning scholarship players at the position."

As mentioned, Grant had been strongly considering Michigan while also holding offers from Arkansas, Boston College and Cincinnati.
