Bio

A relative newcomer to football, Charles Tapper only began playing the game as a junior in high school, but now plays for the Oklahoma Sooners. He’s certainly caught on quickly, earning first-team all-Big 12 honors as a sophomore in 2013. He started 12 of 13 games and registered 49 total tackles and nine tackles for loss. At 6-4, 281 pounds, Tapper brings speed, quickness and athleticism to the field, qualities first honed as a top-flight basketball prospect in the Baltimore area. Coming off a solid 2013 campaign in his first year starting, Tapper could be in for a breakout type year in 2014.

High School

Didn’t start playing football until his junior year at City College High School in Baltimore, but by the time he was done he was considered a four-star recruit. Finished his senior year with 100 tackles and five sacks, but also caught 10 passes for 200 yards and five touchdowns as a tight end. Was also a standout basketball player for the Nike Baltimore Elite team.

College

Got off to a slow start at Oklahoma, but got on the field for five games as a true freshman in 2012, registering two tackles. Things changed quickly in 2013. Tapper earned a starting nod and went on to add 5.5 tackles for loss and a pass broken up to his totals. Missed only the Iowa State game Nov. 16.
