In the current climate, recruiting entered what could be described as a dead period. However, it hasn’t stopped the Oklahoma Sooners from evaluating talent from across the country. Focusing in on a couple of defensive prospects, two players from the South caught the attention of the coaching staff.

In a similar situation, Alfonzo Allen also introduced himself as a recipient of a scholarship offer from the Sooners. A safety out of Florida, the 6-0 junior is rated as a 4-star recruit as well. Holding offers from LSU, Alabama, Auburn, and Florida already, Oklahoma becomes the latest addition to a growing list.
