Today's question: Which redshirt freshman will make the biggest impact for the Sooners in 2013?

John Albright/Icon SMITight end Taylor McNamara received a medical redshirt last season.
Taylor McNamara, Alex Ross and maybe even Trevor Knight could definitely spark the offense, but nowhere do the Sooners need a redshirt freshman to step up more than Jordan Wade at defensive tackle. Wade started to come on strong during bowl practices, which was a great sign for the 2013 season. The Sooners don't have a lot of other options at DT; at the moment, they only have three true DTs on the roster. One of those is Wade, who will have every opportunity to make an impact this season.
