With the turn of the new year, numerous players at the University of Oklahoma have vacated their scholarships. Sitting under the threshold of 85 at this current point in time, the coaching staff continues to sort through talent from across the country. In pursuit of an increase in talent and depth, prospects received a plethora of offers from Lincoln Riley & Co. Here are the names to know from the past week of recruiting.
2021 Defensive End/Outside Linebacker | 4-Star Recruit | Jeremiah Williams
Drawing interest from perennial powers within the SEC, the Oklahoma Sooners remain the most recent program to show intrigue by the prospect. Possessing speed and versatility, Williams appears to pair perfectly with the Sooners’ Speed Defense. Explosive off the line of scrimmage, the prospect flashes dominance due to an above average level of athleticism. Open to the idea of leaving the state of Alabama, the recruiting process is just starting for Williams.
2021 Defensive End | 5-star | Korey Foreman
— Korey Foreman (@koreyforeman54) January 19, 2020
The top ranked recruit in the country regardless of position remains a coveted prospect for any program. With experience beyond his age, Foreman should excel in any scheme and in any conference. Displaying technique combined with strength, the defensive end consistently finds success on the field. After a year in an elite collegiate strength and training program, Foreman could easily be the most dominant player in the country.
2022 Offensive Lineman | NR | Jacob Sexton
As a local Oklahoma prospect, Sexton plays witness to the type of linemen the Sooners produce each and every year. Considered a lock for the program according to several recruiting gurus, the lineman holds five offers — mostly from schools across the Great Plains. With two years until graduation, Sexton should pick up a few more.
2021 Cornerback | 5-Star | Corey Collier
As one of the elite defenders in the 2021 recruiting class, it’s difficult to find a program without an interest in Collier. Proving capable of locking down receivers, the corner can run stride for stride with some of the best. Clearly possessing natural instincts and athleticism, Collier remains a game changer for any university.
2021 Cornerback | 4-Star | Jason Marshall
Also considered one of the top cornerbacks in the country, Marshall may end up with Collier at the college level since the two are currently high school teammates. Regardless, the Marshall currently has plenty of upside as a taller defensive back. For Oklahoma, the recruit could start a trend as the program moves from undersized in the backfield to prototypical players at the position.
2021 Offensive Lineman | NR | Devon Campbell
Attempting to make an early impression with the rising start, seven school have official displayed an interest in Campbell. It just so happens that the Sooners are once again the most recent to do so in the group. Out of Arlington, Texas the lineman most certainly will continue to develop into an imposing force. Eyeing the Longhorns at the moment, will another coaching staff swoop in at the last moment and seal the deal?
2021 Offensive Lineman | 4-Star | Rocco Spindler
Truly blessed to have received an Offer from the University of Oklahoma! To further my Academic and Athletic career! Thank you so much @CoachRoyM and @OU_CoachB for thinking so highly of me, can’t wait to get on campus soon!! #Sooners #Big12 #5Straight pic.twitter.com/nfNuiTzizy
— Rocco Spindler (@RoccoSpindler92) January 21, 2020
Trending as one of the nation’s premiere players regardless of position, Spindler is a two-way player. Showcasing the skill set on the offensive line as well as the defensive line, all the desirable characteristics college coaches look for in a player exist. The one thing setting Spindler apart is the nasty streak — something Bill Bedenbaugh values — on the field.
2022 Cornerback | 4-Star | William Johnson
— Wílł Jøhnšoñ (@Willj1228) January 21, 2020
In a talented class of defensive backs, Johnson quickly rose through the rankings. Listed as the No. 11 overall recruit by 247Sports, the cornerback already holds scholarship offers from ten various programs. Looking to once again make an early impression with one of the best in the class, the Sooners are the most recent to show interest in Johnson.
2021 Defensive End | 4-Star | Demeioun Robinson
Disruptive along the defensive line, Robinson is yet another prospect who fits within the newly installed Speed Defense well. Top notch losing speed remains a strength of the defensive end. However, Robinson will be expected to add weight and strength to the 6-4 frame once entering the collegiate level of play.
2021 Defensive Tackle | 4-Star | Marcus Bradley
Knowing the future position is alarming thin at the University of Oklahoma, it should come as no surprise that Bradley immediately drew interest from the coaching staff. Seemingly entering the equation without little fanfare, the defensive tackle is teammates with Robinson at the high school level. Could the two come as a package deal?
