4-star WR Zach Farrar flips to Oklahoma

And another one. OU adds third 4-star commitment of weekend in wide receiver Zach Farrar.

It’s a four-star weekend for Oklahoma as the Sooners added their third four-star prospect for the weekend Sunday evening.

Southlake (Texas) Carroll wide receiver Zach Farrar announced via Twitter he has indeed flipped his commitment from Mississippi State to OU.


Farrar, ranked No. 57 at wide receiver, is OU’s second pledge at the position, a spot that has been one of the most talked about positions this entire cycle.

The recruitment of Farrar and OU goes back at least a year. The offer between OU and Farrar goes back, wait for it, a whole week.

The Sooners waited until the time was right before making the call and offering Farrar last Sunday. Following an in-home visit from Bob Stoops and Lincoln Riley later in the week, he decided he would indeed check out Norman once again.

Farrar was in Norman once upon a time for OU’s junior day last February. The word from OU coaches at every junior day has been that if you were invited, you are considered for an offer.

It might have taken a lot longer than he had hoped, but he always kept the belief that something was going to materialize.

Farrar, who earned his four-star status this season, is also an accomplished baseball player and will continue on the diamond for the Sooners.

Against some of the best competition in the Dallas area, Farrar had 56 catches for 1,114 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Farrar joins 2017 McKinney (Texas) Boyd offensive guard Tyrese Robinson and Downers Grove (Ill.) South offensive lineman Erik Swenson as four-star prospects, who pledged to OU this weekend.
