Texas picked up a crystal ball prediction from 4-star running back LJ Johnson Tuesday and that seemed to have been good news for Oklahoma fans. The the thought behind that is Johnson’s commitment to the Longhorns means the Sooners were close to landing coveted 5-star running back Camar Wheaton.
A native of Garland, Texas (Lakeview Centennial), Wheaton is the #2 running back prospect for the 2021 class and the #2 overall prospect from the state of Texas according to 247 composite rankings. Boasting 27 total scholarship offers Wheaton (5-11/190) has two crystal ball predictions and they are both for Oklahoma.
OUInsider Brandon Drumm is the latest to give Oklahoma a crystal ball prediction for Wheaton, putting it out on Wednesday morning. He joins Irish Illustrated’s Tom Loy who offered his prediction on December 12th of last year.
Dynamic running back prospect with requisite body type. Adequate height with close to prototypical frame relative to projected position. Long-striding sprinter in the open field who can shorten steps to elude tacklers in the hole. Dangerous one-cut player with explosive straight-line acceleration. Flashes outstanding top-end speed verified on the track (10.67 100 as only a freshman). Slippery strong. Not afraid of contact. Shows encouraging balance upon contact. Serious home run-hitting ability. Displays encouraging patience to allow blocks to materialize. Gears down a bit when asked to change direction or string moves together. Sometimes runs high and presents a bigger target. Among the top offensive prospects in Texas for the 2021 class. Possesses early-round NFL Draft potential thanks to physical profile and legitimate track speed.247Sports Evaluation
