Oklahoma’s big 4th of July weekend rolled on Sunday afternoon with the addition of a Broken Arrow, Oklahoma two-way player. While it was really never a secret that Robert Spears-Jennings was destined to be a Sooner (7 crystal ball predictions last week), it became official on Sunday afternoon.
A 6-2/195 prospect who plays both sides of the ball, Spears-Jennings is rated by 247Sports as the #17 player from the Sooner state. He recorded 36 receptions in 2020 for 721 yards and four touchdowns but also excels on the defensive side of the ball as a safety. It’s his defensive prowess that resulted in Alex Grinch and Roy Manning getting involved in his recruiting and it’s the losses of receiver prospects Talyn Shettron and Jordan Hudson that make people think that perhaps he’ll end up on the offensive side of the ball.
Regardless of which side of the ball he plays on, Oklahoma has a new member of its class that can be a playmaker. Robert Spears-Jennings has earned 14 scholarship offers and the Sooners beat out conference foes Kansas, Kansas State and Texas Tech, as well as the Arkansas and Ole Miss, among others, to secure his commitment.
