OSU insider in-depth: Diamonte Wheeler
by Brandon Chatmon
With recruiting season in full swing, I will be evaluating all 26 prospects who are currently committed to the Oklahoma State football program. I will go in alphabetical order and will post three or four evaluations per day during the next week.
My evaluations will conclude tomorrow when I rank OSU’s commitments including their chances of having an immediate impact in Stillwater.
Diamonte Wheeler, Arlington (Texas) Bowie
Position: Defensive Tackle
Ht, Wt: 6-2, 278
Vitals: 5.0 in 40, 325 bench, 600 squat, 25-inch vertical
Picked OSU over… Nebraska, Texas Tech, Arkansas, Arizona, Houston, Kansas and others
Pros: Wheeler is quick, yet displays the ability to anchor himself in a hole or gap. A very athletic player for his size. Ideal for Bill Young’s philosophy of quick interior linemen.
Cons: Needs to bulk up without losing his quickness.
Expect an impact in… 2011. Expect Wheeler to redshirt but he could push for immediate playing time due to his quickness.
