Febechi Nwaiwu could be the next star offensive lineman for the Oklahoma Sooners

The Oklahoma Sooners have spent their offseason trying to build their offensive line and make it SEC ready. They signed four from the transfer portal and five in the 2024 Recruiting Class.

The aggressiveness comes after they lost five starters from a season ago. Only two who started any games last season return: Troy Everett and Jacob Sexton.

One guy I’m highest on and think could be Oklahoma’s next star offensive lineman is North Texas transfer Febechi Nwaiwu.

When I watch Nwaiwu’s film, this guy has power and moves really well. He has really good size at 6 feet, 4 inches and 326 pounds. He’s a perfect guard for the Sooners this season. I’ve heard nothing but praise so far in the offseason and that only increases my expectations for him.

Nwaiwu spoke about the pitch to him to come to Norman and how he’d fit into the current offensive line roster.

“He (Bill Bedenbaugh) told me he saw a lot of potential in me,” Nwaiwu said. “He also told me that there were a lot of things I could also work on that he thinks he could help me get better at. That’s what really helped sell me that it’s not just that I’m good but that he can make me even better.”

There is a world where Nwaiwu has a big season and is one and done at Oklahoma but I think he could be a two-year guy. I also think he could get some postseason conference recognition and be another draft pick along the offensive line for the Sooners.
