OU football recruiting: Long-time commitment Alex Dalton stuck with Sooners despite offers from big time Division I schools

BY TRENT SHADID, Staff Writer, Published: February 4, 2014

Dalton could one day become the latest in a long line of successful NFL offensive linemen during the Bob Stoops era. The Sooners currently have six former offensive linemen in the league, including recent top five draft picks Trent Williams (2010) and Lane Johnson (2013).

“After these next four years, if the opportunity is there to play at the next level that'd be great,” Dalton said. “That's always been one of my goals and I knew that Oklahoma would one of the best places to help me achieve that goal. It wasn't necessarily a deciding factor, but looking at how many NFL offensive lineman they've produced was definitely in the back of my mind the whole time.”
