Is it Too Early for Sooner Fans to Be Excited About 2019 Verbal Commitments?

I’m sure many of you are aware at this point about the huge start to the Sooners class of 2019 (yes that is still a long ways away), as they landed two wide receivers in the class of 2019 in Theo Wease (6-2/180) from Allen, TX. and Arjei Henderson (6-2/190) from Richmond, TX.

Some might wonder if its too early to be excited about both of these commits as they are just in the spring semester of their sophomore year of high school. National Signing Day for the class of 2019 is not until February 6th, 2019. A ton can change between now and then. So is it worth getting excited.

The answer is a resounding YES. Any positive recruiting momentum that the Sooners can get, regardless of class is huge. I firmly believe the following two things are true when it comes to recruiting:

  1. Elite players want to play with other elite player
  2. Recruits are the best recruiters. 

It also doesn’t hurt at all that both Wease and Henderson chose the Sooners over offers from schools like: Baylor, Colorado, Florida, UGA, Houston, TCU, Texas A&M, USC, Washington, Texas, Oregon, Miami, and Ole Miss.

Considering the number of high level offers both Wease and Henderson have at this point in their sophomore years of high school, it is safe to say they are noth are elite talents regardless of classification. Also I’m guessing it won’t hurt things with class of 2019 Quarterback offer Roschon Johnson 6-2/185 from Port Neches, TX.
