As National Signing Day approaches on Wednesday the Sooners still have some room in their class of 2019. As is stands right now, Oklahoma has 24 players committed in this class with 23 of them already having signed their Letters of Intent. That paves the way for just a little more action Wednesday morning, and here’s who OU is going after.
Committed But Not Signed
Linebacker David Ugwoegbu is a 4-star prospect from Seven Lakes High School in Katy Texas. At 6-3/213, Ugwoebu earned first-team all-district honors as a senior.
In total he received 21 scholarship offers. He committed to Oklahoma, on January 17th, over the likes of Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, and Texas among others.
Uncommitted But Leaning
This is where it gets fun. There are plenty of quality recruits still out there and Oklahoma is in on several of them. While it’s completely crazy to try and predict what an 18-year old kid is going to decide to do, there’s a solid chance these guys will be choosing Oklahoma on Wednesday morning.
Offensive tackle Danielson Ike is rated as a 3-star recruit by 247Sports. The 6-6/300 product of Rockhurst High School (Kansas City, MO.) made a campus visit to OU on January 11th.
Ike has drawn sixteen scholarship offers and there’s some pretty big names in competition with Oklahoma. Michigan, Alabama, and Nebraska are among the programs competing for his pledge but the Sooners seem to have a lead on him heading into Signing Day.
From DeDe Westbrook to Marquise Brown to Brandon Pierce? That’s what Oklahoma is hoping for as the College of the Canyons speedster is the latest Sooners offer.
At 5-11/175, Pierce is going to remind a lot of Oklahoma fans of the aforementioned receivers. His speed is every bit as dazzling as well, if not even more so.
An underrated JUCO prospect, Pierce has drawn little interest from Power Five schools, but with a recorded 4.3/40 time Lincoln Riley knows exactly how to use him.
Ishmael Sopsher is a 4-star defensive tackle prospect that Oklahoma offered in January of 2018. He seems to be destined for the S.E.C. (Most likely LSU) but his 6-6/334 frame could be the beginnings of Oklahoma’s defensive line rebuild.
Kahuku, Hawaii prospect Enokk Vimahi seems to be USC bound but some uncertainty in the offensive coaching staff has opened the door for him to possibly lands somewhere else. The 6-4/263 offensive guard is rated as a 4-star prospect and has drawn 27 offers. He was on campus in Norman January 11th.
