MUSTANG — Signing day started early for Bronson Irwin.

The Oklahoma signee had to be up at 6 a.m. on Wednesday to make up the scheduled workout he would miss in the OU weight room while he attended his 3 p.m. signing ceremony at Mustang High School.

Of course, the former Bronco offensive lineman has had plenty of 6 a.m. workouts the last two weeks, jumping straight into the Sooners' offseason program with the team's other January enrollees.

"It feels good to get in there and get used to it and get in the flow," Irwin said of the workout regimen. "You just get adjusted on the run. The schedule, I'm handling it pretty well right now. Just taking things as they come."

Irwin, a four-star recruit according to both Scout.com and Rivals.com recruiting services, is getting involved early with hopes of competing for a spot on the Sooners' depth chart by the fall. He's working out with several of OU's other young offensive linemen.

"As good as you were in high school, you're back at the bottom of the totem poll," said Irwin, 6-foot-5, 305 pounds. "It's good to have guys around that know what's going on and can help you out if you have a question.
