At 6-3/325, EJ Ndoma-Ogar has received 39 scholarship offers but Bill Bedenbaugh was able to convince him that Oklahoma was the place to be, over the likes of Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, and many others.
He becomes OU’s firs commitment on the offensive line for the 2019 class. The Sooners currently have six offensive guards on the roster with Ben Powers and Dru Samia heading into their senior seasons.
With 11 commitments currently in the 2019 class, Oklahoma currently has the top-ranked class both by Rivals and 247Sports. Eight of the commitments to the Sooners are ranked 4-stars or higher by 247Sports.
