On Thursday several members of Oklahoma’s 2021 recruiting class took to social media in celebration of what seemed to be a silent commitment. We think we might know who it is.
On Friday 247Sports Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong cast a crystal ball prediction for Oklahoma landing Billy Bowman. At 5-10/175 Bowman is the #5 prep prospect from the state of Texas and the #3 athlete for the 2021 recruiting class. The 4-star recruit had recently decommitted from Texas and has 32 scholarship offers at his disposal.
Bowman was already thought to be a heavy lean to come to Oklahoma but Wiltfong’s near 91% all-time accuracy brings some major credence to that speculation. He’s the latest of eight recruiting experts from 247Sports to offer a crystal ball prediction for Bowman to the Sooners.
Earlier in the month Bowman released his Top 3 with Oklahoma, Georgia, and LSU being the finalists. In addition to football he also plays basketball and runs track where his speed can be on full display. Should the Sooners end up landing him it’s expected that Lincoln Riley will use that speed as an offensive weapon.
