Last I heard he didn’t have a way here. Could arrive at anytime.

Sounded odd to me but guessing it’s legit.

I joked that I’d just go get him and his stuff, the reply...
“you may have to.”

Crazy. I've seen stories in the past of guys hitchhiking to two a days. Why does the NCAA put them through that? Why in the world wouldn't getting them to campus be part of the scholarship?

That being said, somebody tell him to hitchhike. If he's 7-1 he'll be pretty easy for OU fans to spot, and give him a lift..

This is insane to me, they should definitely be able to go pick him up.

very curious if he has put on any weight. He could be a nice bonus to our low post depth this season.

He has done very well. Toby Rowland on the radio this morning was glowing about him and the rest of the team. Toby did say he is always optimistic but these guys really excited him. He also said LK has the look that I have a real team here.

No but expected here in August. Issanza is probably better than expected early, certainly by most of us on this board.

Hope he makes it!

Great news about Issanga... I guess there's a chance then that he might not redshirt.

I’m excited about this team. I’m even more excited now that the positive reports on players like Kauth and Issanga are filtering in. I was already sold on Harmon, Hill, Iwuakor and the returning players from last year.

This is a very deep team with more size and athleticism than we have seen in sometime. The talent and skills appear to be there too. The only questions for me (aside from Williams of course) are in the areas of team chemistry and how long will it take this group to come together on defense?

Bottom line. I think this team has the potential to be special. But, that’s just me. I have been known to catch the preseason bug Toby alluded to about this time every year.

meh, there's extra reason to be excited this season. Lon is certainly extra excited. I'm very interested to see what the lineup will look like.

It's ISSANZA right? Seeing more Issanga than Issanza on here has me confused...

Yes, it’s Issanza. I got lazy and went with Issanga without checking the spelling.

Thanks for pointing that out! I wouldn’t want to see Issanza replace Jamuni McNeace as the OU player with the new misspelled name record. Half or more posters on this board spelled Jamuni’s name “McNease” instead of McNeace.
