— Casady offensive lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali verbally committed to Oklahoma on Thursday, becoming the Sooners' first commitment for the class of 2015.

The 6-foot-3, 310-pound junior also holds scholarship offers from Clemson and Oregon State.

“I think everybody that knows Josh has seen this coming,” said Casady coach Koby Scoville. “He's always been a big, athletic kid that's very smart. When you see him on the football field, he's very tenacious. He'll get after you. He goes snap to whistle for four quarters.”

Wariboko-Alali's interest from big-time college football programs began picking up in January, when he attended the U.S. Army National Combine and turned heads.

A couple months later, he attended the Rivals/Under Armour camp in Dallas and was named the event's top underclassman.

Scoville said that Wariboko-Alali has visited and been in contact with lots of other schools, but that once OU began showing interest, his excitement went to another level.

Wariboko-Alali picked up his OU offer from offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh at the beginning of June.

“When OU started showing serious interest, you could see it in his eyes and mannerisms that he was really excited,” Scoville said.
