Sure he only lives a mere 45 minutes from Norman, but Mustang (OK) offensive lineman Bronson Irwin doesn't pass on too many opportunities to be on location of where he will soon call home.
So when the Sooners played their first major home game of the season against the in-state Tulsa team, there was no doubt Irwin would be present.
"It was a real good game. It was the most impressive showing all year," Irwin said of Oklahoma's 45-0 rout of Tulsa Saturday.
With location being a major plus for the 6-foot-5, 305-pound Irwin, making it to Norman has little to no difficulty. But he situation is much different now.
"Ever since I committed to Oklahoma, it been a little different when I visit. It's like a pride thing," Irwin said. "You know, knowing that this is your home brings a special feeling I get every time I come. It makes me excited and I am looking forward to my future there."
And so were others as Irwin was not alone on the Sooner sidelines for the game. He mentioned that Austin Woods, Jarrett Lake, Aaron Colvin and Brennan Clay (who was on his official visit) were all in attendance.
"It was good getting to see all of those guys. Brennan (Clay) is a really cool guy and this was his first game at the stadium," Irwin said. "He (Clay) seemed real excited too. But I talked with all of the guys, but I talked with Austin (Woods) for a long time.
"It definitely feels good getting to know your linemen. And the good thing is that I think that both of us are early graduates so that's good. We also talked about possibly being roommates for next fall."
