The first four Oklahoma Sooners football recruiting finds arrived on the OU campus this week to start school for the Spring semester and will be eligible to participate in spring drills and play in the annual Red-White game. According to NewsOK.com on Jan. 14, two freshmen and two junior college transfers all arrived for the start of the semester.
The players were freshman quarterback Justice Hansen and freshman all-purpose athlete Dimitri Flowers as well as junior college transfers, tight end Isaac Ijalana and linebacker Devante Bond.
A fifth player wanted to enroll for the Sooners' Spring semester but four-star receiver Dallis Todd couldn't enroll because his high school's first semester lasts until the end of January, making him ineligible to enroll in college at this time.
Justice Hansen was expected to get a solid opportunity for the starting quarterback job and many Sooners' fans followed his high school career carefully. Hansen spent a lot of time injured in his senior season, but with the play of Trevor Knight in the Sugar Bowl, Hansen won't be needed when he arrives as well. With Knight, Blake Bell and Kendal Thompson on the team, Hansen will be a future project.
As for Dimitri Flowers, he is expected to play the same kind of role that Trey Millard did, as a blocking back, tight end and fullback. Isaac Ijalana has a chance to immediately step in as the starting tight end with a strong showing and Devante Bond will provide depth at the linebacker position.
