Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting | LaRon Stokes Verbally Commits

Rich DeCray


Although the Sooners continue to prepare for the upcoming College Football Playoff, the coaches emphasized the importance of recruiting in the state while the current players knocked out a few finals. Journeying to the northeast part of Oklahoma, the staff met with LaRon Stokes, a junior college defensive end primed for a bigger role at a division one school. Recently receiving an official offer, the homegrown prospect immediately scheduled a visit to Norman.

Clearly impressed with the tour provided by the university, Stokes verbally committed to play for the Sooners in the upcoming season. Growing up as a fan of the program, others attempted to sway the defensive end but those suitors remained unsuccessful. Needless to say, welcome to the family LaRon! Now, the potential JUCO All-American possesses an opportunity to sign during the early period and maybe, just maybe, set foot on campus early.

At 6-4 and 245-pounds, Stokes has an opportunity to compete for playing time immediately. Nonetheless, behind experience and sheer size, the defensive end certainly adds depth at the position for the foreseeable future.
