Sooners commit Brandon Glenn expected to sign with a juco instead

by Ryan Aber Published: January 29, 2014

Irving (Texas) Ranchview defensive end Brandon Glenn has been committed to Oklahoma since mid-June.

Now it appears the 6-foot-3, 285-pound Glenn will sign elsewhere next week instead of signing with the Sooners on signing day.

Glenn will sign with Navarro (Texas) Junior College for academic reasons, Ranchview coach Terry Smith said Wednesday.

Smith said the Sooners would continue recruiting Glenn. If he’s not academically eligible with the NCAA, Glenn would have to graduate junior college before moving on to play Division I. He could play two years at Navarro and have three years to play two at a four-year school or redshirt one year and play one year at Navarro and then have three years to play three at a four-year school.

The only other defensive end committed to the Sooners is Dwayne Orso of Homewood, Ala.

The Sooners still continue to push hard for defensive end Deondre Clark of Douglass. Clark, who is officially committed to LSU despite publicly considering the Sooners, will be in Arlington, Texas, on signing day for the International Bowl two days later and is planning on waiting until his return before making his final decision public.
