Receiver Brian Darby is currently listed as a 3-star recruit by 247Sports but once Oklahoma got a good look at him they didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger on making an offer. In similar fashion, Darby was quick to respond and almost immediately committed to the Sooners.
At the Texas 7-on-7 Championship Tournament Darby showed why the Oklahoma coaching staff things so highly of him, and why Oklahoma fans should be excited about his commitment to the 2020 class.
The 5-11/192 prospect from College Station, Texas captured the attention of the coaching staff during workouts at the OU Houston Baptist satellite camp. Receiving an official scholarship offer at the close of the camp, it didn’t take long for Darby to make a decision. 247Sports’ Brandon Drumm caught up with the prospect and asked, “why Oklahoma?”
Responding, Darby said, ” I knew OU was the school for me because I know Coach Riley, Coach Dennis Simmons and Coach Cale Gundy will get me to that next level that I need to be at going forward. It’s also a family atmosphere up there and they compete for a national championship every year, so why not go?”
