Oklahoma picks up eighth 2014 football commitment from Tulsa Union tight end Carson Meier

by Jason Kersey Published: May 22, 2013

NORMAN — Tulsa Union tight end Carson Meier committed to Oklahoma on Wednesday, becoming the Sooners’ eighth commitment for its recruiting class of 2014.

Meier, a three-star prospect according to Rivals, also holds scholarship offers from Duke, Oregon State, Rice, Rutgers, SMU, Washington State and Wisconsin.

News of Meier’s commitment was first reported by ESPN.com.

Meier (6-foot-7, 220 pounds) is ranked No. 9 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 list, which ranks the state’s top college football prospects.

Oklahoma’s inexperienced tight ends struggled to get on the field last season, as they adapted to the college game and the Sooners’ deep wide receiver corps flourished. OU didn’t add any tight ends in its 2013 signing class.
