Trey Millard comes to Oklahoma as the No. 15 tight end in the country, but he proved versatile as a high-schooler and could continue shifting positions when he arrives in Norman.

He was the primary ballcarrier at Rock Bridge in Columbia, Mo., and with Matt Clapp graduating, could step in at fullback as well.

"This is a 6-3, 250-pound kid who hurdles guys and runs away from DBs," said A.J. Ofodile, his high school coach. "His athletic ability speaks to more than that position."

Ofodile said his 6-2, 245-pound frame was reminiscent of Brandon Jacobs when carrying the football, and is listed by Rivals as the No. 5 prospect in Missouri.

"Obviously, because of the role he'll be playing, he'll be a bit of an unsung hero," Ofodile said. "But for an offensive coaching staff, he adds a lot of diversity."
