The list of offers continues to grow at a rapid pace as Lincoln Riley and his staff look for the next crop of prospects. However, it’s not all good news for the Oklahoma Sooners this week on the recruiting trail as the program lost a commitment.
Darion Green-Warren | Cornerback
Growing up in Oklahoma, Darion Green-Warren’s dream revolved around the idea of playing at Gaylord Memorial Stadium while wearing the crimson and cream. Receiving an offer from the University of Oklahoma, the 4-star recruit committed to play for Lincoln Riley. However, the decision failed to ward off competitors as others entered names into the sweepstakes for Green-Warren. Ultimately, the California resident decided to reopen the recruitment process after visiting another campus.
Travion Ford | 2021 Class | Defensive End
Racking up 82 tackles as a sophomore, Travion Ford continues to fly under the radar in most circles. This should come as no surprise as the defensive end remains a member of the 2021 recruiting class. Already holding offers from some of the best in the country, Ford will continue to rise entering a junior season. For now, the prospect is simply a name to keep an eye on.
James Brockermeyer | 2021 Class | Center
Although the Sooners are set at the position for the foreseeable future, it’s never too early to begin looking for a dominant center. Welcome James Brockermeyer to the equation. Just a high school sophomore, the center possesses the frame to be success at the next level. If Oklahoma can convince James to join the program, he’ll likely come as a package deal with his brother, Tommy — an offensive lineman. The one caveat here is that the Brockermeyer family has deep ties to Texas.
Major Burns | 2020 Class | Safety
Earlier this year, Major Burns committed to play for the Texas A&M Aggies. However, the decision failed to keep other suitors away as five other programs have swooped in since including Oklahoma. Possessing 6’1.5 height, Burns would be that tallest safety on the current roster. Regardless, the safety cemented himself as one of, if not the, best defensive back in the state of Louisiana and will continue to draw interest from around the nation.
