OU eyeing 2019 talent

OU is already trying to make impression with 2019 class.

We know about Oklahoma and the 2017 class dubbed SoonerSquad17. The Sooners have 12 of their 16 current commits ranked in the Scout 300.

OU is also off to a great start for 2018 with both commits in the Scout 300, including a five-star in Moore (Okla.) Southmoore offensive tackle Brey Walker.

But Scout is not afraid to start really looking ahead toward the 2019 class. The first Watch List was released Monday. And though OU has made less than 10 offers at this point for the class, OU is already in on some major names.


Marietta (Ga.) Walton WR Dominick Blaylock

Yes, that Blaylock. Being the son of former OU star basketball player Mookie Blaylock doesn’t hurt, but that just gets you in the door. Blaylock is hopeful to be in Norman this weekend for the BBQ and was offered by the Sooners in the spring. OU is putting in some serious work in Georgia in the last 12 months, and that includes hitting up those prospects much earlier than ever before.


Phoenix Pinnacle QB Spencer Rattler

The lone quarterback offer by Lincoln Riley for the 2019 class up to this point. Riley made it known in a major way by offering Rattler in the spring. OU wasn’t even among his first three offers, which speaks to the amount of potential colleges are seeing in Rattler from across the country. OU isn’t the favorite at this point (nobody is), but the Sooners have put themselves in the conversation.


Gardena (Calif.) Serra RB Max Williams

Oh, Serra, when have you ever been kind to OU? The Sooners have to keep coming back to Gardena Serra because of the incredible wealth of talent. But truthfully, OU just doesn’t have a great track record with the school. And Williams is already getting offers from a who’s who in college football so no easy task here for Jay Boulware and company.


Collinsville (Okla.) High ATH Grayson Boomer

The sole OKPreps prospect to make this initial cut, but Boomer is definitely worth keeping tabs on going forward. He grew up an OU fan and of course is teammates with OU’s highest-ranked commit for 2017 in Levi Draper. OU is showing casual interest right now, perhaps trying to figure out exactly what position he should play going forward. Seems like just a matter of time before OU ramps it up and lets Boomer know it wants him in Norman. With a name like Boomer, yea, it has to happen, right?

Added bonus:


Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington DB Daxton Hill

A Sooners Illustrated add-on here. Hill is not in the Scout Watch List just yet, but he will be. He’ll be in everybody’s list sooner than later. The younger brother of Oklahoma State freshman running back Justice Hill, Daxton is already bigger than big bro. Hill was a standout at OU’s elite camp in June and is expected to be back in Norman this weekend for the BBQ event. An offer wouldn’t be out of the question.
