Oklahoma seems to be a heavy favorite to land the #6 overall player in the class of 2021 and the Sooners would very much like for him to bring #7 with him.
The latest rankings from 247Sports have Caleb Williams (Oklahoma’s Top Target) as the #6 player in the nation and receiver Emeka Egbuka just behind him. A 6-1/190 prospect from Steilacoom, Washington (Steilacoom High School), Egbuka is the nation’s top wide receiver recruit and one of the newest 5-star recruits in the class.
Thought to be a slight lean towards staying home and playing for Washington, Egbuka has received 36 total scholarship offers. On his blog post for Sports Illustrated Caleb Williams said that he is working to build relationships with, and recruit, other athletes. He listed Egbuka as one of the guys that he’d like to play college football with.
Getting the #1 quarterback and #1 receiver in 2021 could possibly help lead Oklahoma to a historic recruiting class. While it is a long way from being a lock that it will happen, it still very much remains a possibility and a situation that we should keep an eye on.
