NORMAN — At long last, junior-college defensive tackle signee Quincy Russell arrived at Oklahoma on Wednesday afternoon, according to a post on his Facebook account.

Russell (6-foot-3, 311 pounds) signed with the Sooners in December out of Trinity Valley Community College, but his arrival was delayed as he finished up classes to secure his academic eligibility.

He’s a couple weeks late to fall training camp, but Russell will certainly be welcomed into the fold on a defensive line lacking in experience.

The San Antonio native originally signed with Texas out of high school, but was forced to take the junior-college route because of academic issues.

Offensive tackle Josiah St. John, one of Russell’s Trinity Valley teammates, also signed with OU and joined the team just before fall camp began.

“He’s a monster … a complete animal,” St. John said in February. “He’s big, fast, strong.

“I’m pretty sure he’s gonna make a big impact.”
