Oklahoma adds dismissed DE from Tulsa

NCAA Football - Oklahoma vs Missouri - October 28, 2006

The dream of playing for the Oklahoma Sooners will soon become a reality for defensive end Dalton Rodriguez. Rodriguez is transferring to Oklahoma from Tulsa after being dismissed by the Golden Hurricane. Rodriguez was dismissed by Tulsa for a violation of team rules back in March.

“I’m ready to put in the work and ready to get back on the field,” Rodriguez said, per The Oklahoman. “It was cool getting to play as a freshman and TU was all right, but I had my doubts about it from when I first got there.”

Rodriguez  recorded seven tackles and a pair of sacks for Tulsa in 2013. Rodriguez had committed to the Sooners out of high school. The Sooners would have had Rodriguez play on the offensive side of the ball, but Rodriguez had a desire to play defense. That opportunity was given to him by Tulsa, which also allowed him to stay closer to home. It is not known yet which position Rodriguez will play with the Sooners, but Rodriguez is open to any position that is asked of him.

“They haven’t really said,” Rodriguez told The Oklahoman. “But whatever gets me out on the field quickest.”

Rodriguez will be forced to sit out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but plans to work hard to earn a scholarship from Oklahoma in 2015.

    While most programs purge the turds from their program, OU likes to collect them.

    OU has certainly taken on their share of scumbags lately. Maybe they’ll will apply to join the $EC in a few years. Their players would fit right in.

    i’d say that the dozens and dozens of articles about thugs and cheaters at schools like OU, Notre Dame, and Michigan(just a few examples, but there are many others) dispel the notion that this is anything close to being an SEC problem.

    nah, these kids fit in just fine where they are(OU, Michigan, and Notre Dame). the SEC doesn’t want/need them.

    He’ll fit right in with this criminal infested University.

    Stoop is at a new low in collecting thugs for his team. Times must be getting tough. Hey Bob,keep up the good work. I hear OJ might be getting out soon.

    Oklahoma is now looking like Awburn and Louisville.

    Sounds to me like Tulsa ran him off, by OU’s interpretation of the run-off rules.

    So why aren’t they appealing? Perhaps he isn’t as good as DGB.

    Stoops is really blowing up any reputation he had left. wow They are creating their own cell block down there. How many criminals can you have on a team. How many assaulted women on the starting offense this year???

    i guess a GED from the federal pen gets you in this school.

    Most of you have never played DIV 1 football, so to make commits of Bob Stoops is completely unacceptable. Secondly, most of you that posted the commits about OU adding more criminals to the team have no clue as to what you are saying. Dalton did have a “TEAM VIOLATION”, which was ” Not have 20 hours of Study hall time at the end of a week”. I did not realize that not going to the library is a crime!!! For all those haters that have NO CLUE, you will need to think again before your thoughts.
