If you thought that new Sooner commit Mario Williams was fast then wait until you see Christian Leary. A name that many Oklahoma fans are already familiar with. The 4-star Edgewater, Florida receiver has been linked with top Sooner target Caleb Williams for a while now and both are thought to be heavy leans to come to Norman.
The 5-9/180 Leary is ranked as the #19 prospect from the state of Florida, and the #18 receiver prospect in the nation, by 247 Sports. Earning 43 total scholarship offers, he seems to have settled between Alabama, Auburn, Florida, or Oklahoma.
What sets Leary apart in this recruiting cycle is his top-end speed. A scoring threat each time he touches the ball, Leary has no problems separating from defenders once he finds space in the open field. Here’s proof as he clocks 21.6 miles per hour in a game last fall.
Leary has set June 6th as the date to announce his commitment.
