During the summer, ESPN.com is taking a closer look at each scholarship player on Oklahoma’s roster in our Crimson Countdown series. Each day, we analyze each player’s impact on the program since arriving on campus, his potential impact this fall, and his long-term projection. Starting with No. 1 Dominique Alexander, the series follows the roster numerically through No. 98 Chuka Ndulue.
No. 53 Tony Feo, guard, 6-foot-3, 300 pounds, senior
Impact thus far: A junior college signee, Feo made an impact on special teams during his first year on campus. He played in 12 games as a mainstay on OU’s punt unit, even recording a tackle against Texas Tech.
Impact in 2014: If he doesn’t earn a spot in the rotation, Feo should provide depth at guard and serve as a special teams mainstay for the second-straight season.
Long term upside: At the very least he should contribute on special teams for the second-straight season.
Evaluation grade for Feo: A. A late addition to OU’s Class of 2013, Feo has done exactly what he was brought in to do. The Sooners pursued him to provide depth and protection in case the injury bug crippled the guard position.
Development grade for Feo: B. He played in his first game as a Sooner so the opportunity to play has been given to the California native. And it’s very possible he could see additional time on offense during his final season.
