P.J. Mbanasor, a 6-foot-2, 182-pound cornerback from Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson named his top seven schools last Thursday and on Monday he made his seven become one.
He pulled the trigger and made his commitment to play for the Oklahoma Sooners in college, ending his recruiting process.
"They can take you places and it just seems like a good fit," Mbanasor said of the program led by Bob Stoops at OU.
Mbanasor is also looking forward to competing at a high level in college and wants to compete for Big 12 and National Championships. He feels OU provides that.
"Production man," Mbanasor said as to why he was so high on the Sooners. "Winning."
"When you talk to some schools and they all say that they are on the rise, but Oklahoma rose before I was even born, so just production."
He will also be getting special attention in the defensive backfield as both Bob Stoops and defensive coordinator Mike Stoops played defensive back in college.
"The head coach is a DB guy and you just have guys who know how to develop DBs," Mbanasor explained.
"I fit in the scheme well. They have a good business program. They have a good athletic program."
Eval - It is no surprise Mbanasor has become one of the most heavily recruited players in the area. He has a unique blend of skills that make him a desirable lock down corner prospect. Big-framed, but quick and plays low. Can sink his hips and turn. He has the size and strength to man up big-framed feature receivers. Plays with savvy and confidence, showing good hand-eye coordination. He just has a knack for getting a hand in to break up pass plays.
