Chose OU over: USC, Texas A&M, Florida, Miami, Missouri, Nebraska Where he fits on the depth chart: If any linebacker has a chance to play as a freshman, it’s Wort, who will be an early enrollee. The hard-hitting native of England more likely will redshirt.

Long-term impact: In time, Wort could be the heir-apparent at middle linebacker. He’s still developing, since he only started playing football after moving from England as a teen. But the skill set is intact and waiting to be unleashed.
