The Path to Norman
Brey Walker committed to the Sooners way, way back in November, 2015. Despite being a five star lineman, he only had nine offers by the time he signed with Oklahoma two years later due to his strong show of OU support. A U.S. Army All-American, Walker signed with OU in the early signing period and enrolled early.

Career so Far
In his first year on campus, Walker was able to take advantage of the new redshirt rule, seeing action against Kansas State to gain experience but not losing a year of eligibility.
In 2019, Walker saw his playing time jump significantly as he transitioned to guard. He played in 13 of the Sooners’ 14 games, including two starts. Those starts came against Texas Tech and Kansas State with Adrian Ealy sidelined; both games showed promise, with Texas Tech in particular being a strong performance for the Oklahoma native.
Position: Offensive Lineman
Year: Redshirt Sophomore
2018: 1 GP
2019: 13 GP, 2 Starts
Brey Walker has always been a big man; he’s put on almost 20 pounds since last spring. TFB has routinely reported how excellent his spring has been (all things considered) and how hard he is working to maximize his playing time. The entire offensive line is elite and very deep in 2020. The guard spots return starters Marquis Hayes and Tyrese Robinson; however, EJ Ndoma-Ogar and Walker will be pushing hard to carve out a role. It will be difficult to usurp returning starters, but both EJ and Walker will look to be an integral part of a deep 2020 offensive line.
