The Oklahoma Sooners made a defensive offer on Tuesday to four-star Louisville, Kentucky cornerback Jairus Brents. A 5-10/178 member of the class of 2018, Brents already has a plethora of offers from schools like Alabama, Cincinnati, Florida, Michigan State, UCLA and twenty-nine other schools.

Considered by many to currently be a lock to stay home and play for Louisville, Brents has seen his recruiting take off recently by picking up offers from TCU and Rutgers (as well as making an unofficial visit to Florida State) to close out last month, and then the offer from Oklahoma on Tuesday. With a year of high school football remaining it’s anyone’s guess as to where he’ll spend his college years.
Brents possesses elite speed, which sets him up to excel in the return game as well, and possesses a ton of power for his size, allowing him to play physical. More important than any of his physical attributes is his character that allows him to be both humble and a strong leader.
The Sooners currently have eight corners on their roster with Jordan Thomas and Will Johnson being the only two seniors. Three-star corner Jordan Austin (Lancaster, Texas) committed to Oklahoma last summer, on July 7th, and remains a strong commitment for the 2018 class.
