Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley added another solid offensive-line prospect to his 2018 class.
Navarro College (Corsicana, Texas) tackle David Swaby announced his commitment to the Sooners in a tweet on Monday.
The 2018 junior college product will join Oklahoma this summer and will be eligible for the upcoming season. Swaby was also considering offers from Ole Miss, Baylor and Houston.

The 6-foot-9, 315-pound tackle lacked FBS interest out of Los Angeles Salesian High School. So, he went the junior college route as a full qualifier and will have three years of eligibility remaining with the Sooners.
While Oklahoma has experience returning along its offensive line, the Sooners needed more depth at tackle, especially after losing Orlando Brown to the NFL Draft and missing out on of their biggest graduate-transfer targets.
The Sooners were after Rice graduate transfer Calvin Anderson this offseason, but he ultimately chose Texas.
Swaby might’ve been unheralded out of high school. He is still a huge body that coach Bill Bedenbaugh will have the chance to develop over the next few seasons.
Swaby faces a huge challenge, however, with the likes of 2018 tackle signees Brey Walker, Darrell Simpson and Tramonda Moore. But none of Oklahoma’s incoming tackles possess the frame of Swaby.
