Lineman Zach Hannon visiting Oklahoma 

April, 5, 2012
Offensive lineman Zach Hannon (Kansas City, Mo./Rockhurst) was beginning to think he simply wasn’t meant to see Oklahoma. Several times in the past, Hannon had invitations or plans to see what the OU campus is all about but things fell through every time.

So this week something like a little mis-communication wasn’t going to be enough to keep him from making the trip to Norman, Okla., especially since he can't make OU’s spring game on April 14 because he is taking the ACT.

Hannon, 6-foot-4 and 295 pounds, spoke with OU offensive line coach James Patton last week about visiting OU this weekend. Hannon initially thought it was to watch an OU scrimmage, but the Sooners are not practicing this weekend.

With Kansas City Rockhurst out of school on Friday, however, Hannon has elected to visit OU to take a tour of the campus.

“Coach Patton wants to see me first before he makes an offer. I understand that and that makes perfect sense,” Hannon said. “We first started talking a month ago, and I’m excited to see where things go from here.”

Hannon said he is pretty sure he is being recruited at guard by OU. The Sooners have not shown much interest in guards so far for the 2013 class.
