A three-star defensive tackle for Tulsa Union, Jordan Kelley narrowed down potential universities to a variety of OU, TCU, and OSU. Leaning toward an in-state collegiate career, the 6-4 280-pound high schooler pledged to lend his talents to the University of Oklahoma. The commitment comes after the Under Armour Camp on Sunday afternoon and makes the second of the weekend.
Now up to six commits in the 2018 class, the coaching staff continues to find success with home grown talent. With Kelley on board, half the the commits (6) are now in-state products. Recruited by Calvin Thibodeaux, the second year coach is started to pay dividends. Make no mistake, there’s still plenty of time to hit the recruiting trail and Kelley is easily the first of many defensive lineman expected to commit to Oklahoma.
Joining teammate Patrick Fields, Kelley continues the pipeline from Tulsa to Norman. It’s clearly been and will continue to be a hot spot for coaches looking for some of the best talent in the state of Oklahoma. The only question that remains is: who will be next?
