This is the second day of the countdown from SI starting at No. 24 and running to No. 1 of the most crucial individual players on the offensive depth chart.

No. 23:

Player: Josh Aladenoye

Position: Backup right tackle

The rundown: While Aladenoye is listed as a reserve offensive lineman behind right tackle Cory Brandon, he’s a guy that’s melded within the system for a year, as he redshirted a season ago during 2009. Prior to that, he was an impressive prospect on the recruiting trail, listed as the 36th-ranked offensive lineman coming out of high school. Aladenoye, from Mesquite, Texas, has a good frame for his position at 6-foot-5, 342 lb.

Expectations for 2010: Sooner fans hope, at least for performance sake from starter Brandon, that they won’t see a whole lot of Aladenoye at this position in the fall. But if Brandon is as shaky as he was in the opener against BYU a year ago, he could see some action. But that doesn’t seem all that likely with a better corps. around him.


No. 24: Bronson Irwin
