Signing as a Sooner: No. 18

2013 OU cornerback signee Dakota Austin

NORMAN, Okla. — OU's final signee of the morning is yet another defensive back.

Signing Time: 11:21 a.m. Ranking: Three-star

Signee: (CB—5'11"/165)—On the last recruiting weekend for this cycle, Austin finally got the offer he'd long been waiting on and pulled the trigger right on the spot. The No. 134 cornerback became the fifth defensive back commit and second at corner. He's got good cover skills and good enough size to mold into a solid college secondary player.

What he's coming into at the position:Austin has a lot in front of him in terms of depth, so expect coaches to go into developmental phase with him. Starters will include Aaron Colvin and one of Cortez Johnson, Gary Simon, Gabe Lynn and Julian Wilson. The staff could very easily redshirt him to save the year.
