Oklahoma OL grabs Army offer

Lawton (Okla.) had a strong season a year ago, starting 12-0 before falling in the state playoffs. The Wolverines hope to build on that success this season and one of the key cogs will be offensive lineman Brandon Dewitt.
The 6-foot-2, 270-pound senior helped anchor the line as a junior and is being looked to as a leader in 2011. Recently he picked up his first FBS offer.
"I was offered by Army," Dewitt said on Monday evening. "They offered me yesterday. I had been talking to them for a couple of months and then they had called yesterday about me having an offer.
"I've been hearing from Tulsa and a little bit from OSU as well as Sam Houston State. I've heard a lot from UPenn and Dartmouth too. I would love to have the opportunity to go to the Ivy League."
Dewitt was able to make a trip to West Point over the summer in addition to a few other schools.
"I had gone up there to visit in late July," he said. "It was actually really cool. They have awesome facilities and the coaches are really cool. That's one of the top schools on my list right now.
"I visited UPenn when I was up there too. I went to their camp. Other than that it was all schools around here. I went to Tulsa, Missouri, OSU and Baylor."
Dewitt can play anywhere on the interior of the offensive line at the next level. It is also not out of the question that he moves to other side of the ball either.
"It started out where everybody was recruiting me as a guard," he said. "I've moved to center this year, though, so some are considering me for there. Also, I'll be playing a lot more defense this year so defensive line is also a possibility with the Ivy League schools."
Dewitt admits to having a trio of schools at the top of his list heading into his senior.
"UPenn, Dartmouth and Army - those are the main three that really stick out."
