The 2020 edition of the Red River Rivalry is still a few days away but Oklahoma may have already beaten Texas in a key recruiting battle. Denton, Texas prospect Billy Bowman is trending towards the Sooners just days after decommiting from the Longhorns.
The 4-star prospect is rated as the #3 athlete in the 2021 class and is the #6 overall recruit from the state of Texas, per 247. At 5-10/175 Bowman plays on both sides of the ball but is most likely slated as a receiver if he decides to play at Oklahoma. In addition to football he also plays basketball and runs track where his speed can be on full display.
Currently sitting on 31 scholarship offers, Bowman was given two crystal ball predictions towards Oklahoma this week. One was from OUInsider’s Brandon Drumm and the other from HogSports.com’s Danny West. Both are a part of the 247Sports network. Those were the first two crystal ball predictions given for Bowman since his decommitment.
