After losing offensive tackle Andrew Raym, the top recruit in the state, the Oklahoma Sooners must head back to the drawing board. Scouring the nation for the best of the best, Lincoln Riley has yet to secure an offensive tackle for the 2020 class. However, the coaching staff is hoping to rewrite the story during the offseason.
Currently nine offers are on the table but none is bigger than the one sitting in front of Paris Johnson Jr. The offensive tackle from St. Xavier in Cincinnati, OH received an offer from Oklahoma at the beginning of May. As the top ranked offensive tackle, Johnson is highly regarded earring the title of nation’s No. 7 overall prospect. The star lineman holds offers from over thirty schools. While the youngster has yet to verbally commit, it’s likely that Johnson will stay home and play at the Ohio State University.
So where does that leave the Sooners? Attempting to get in early on a few names, OU offered Paul Tchio who has labeled the Alabama Crimson Tide as his dream landing spot. Yet, Bama currently has seven offensive tackles on the roster and three more committed to play in the future. It’s going to be a crowded situation for anyone looking to make an impact.
That leaves the door open on Tchio. Can this Oklahoma coaching staff swing him onto their side of the fence in these recruiting wars?
