100 Days to Football Time in Oklahoma: #17 Ty DeArman

The Path to Norman

Ty DeArman, a Texas high school product, went from unknown to Sooner fans to a signed player within a matter of hours. He committed to Arizona State in the summer of 2018 and appeared to be heading there. However, OU officially offered DeArman on the December signing day; he quickly decided that OU was the way to go.

2019 Season

The coaches seemed to really like DeArman; his physicality is evident. TFB has reported that he is open to play anywhere on the field, and might even find a spot as a punt returner. Special teams seems like the quickest path to playing time; otherwise, a redshirt season is probably in store. It will be interesting to see what spots Ty ends up playing during his time in Norman.
