How will Oklahoma build off its 2017 class is a major question. SoonerSquad17 finished No. 6 in Scout’s rankings, but now the page turns to 2018.
The Sooners have three commits with two of them in the Scout 100. Who are some of the other targets? Where does OU stand with them?
An early look at the 38 names of interest in the eyes of Sooners Illustrated for OU’s #SavageTeam2K18 class.
Again, pure opinion. Some offers aren’t listed on here. Some prospects don’t have offers but are listed. By no means an official look.
Carthage (Texas) High RB Keaontay Ingram
OU is one of many schools to offer Ingram in last few weeks, but feels like he’ll stay in-state with one of the Texas schools.
Houston Bellaire Episcopal WR Jaylen Waddle
Marvin Wilson going to Florida State hurts in this one. It’s not a slam dunk Waddle follows the Real Life Goon to Tallahassee but don’t be surprised.
Frisco (Texas) Wakeland OT Rafiti Ghirmai
Ghirmai is landing one big offer after another, but the Sooners haven’t made that leap yet. He did visit for Bedlam so they’re not strangers.
Lewisville (Texas) Hebron CB Verone McKinley
Look, nobody has visited more than McKinley so OU making his top nine was no shock. OU easily makes his top three. After that? It gets interesting and too early to know.
Euless (Texas) Trinity S Cameron Jones
Can you go beyond up? Seriously, the Sooners have done everything right with Jones and struck the right chord, especially after junior day visit.
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy OT Reuben Unije
This is all based on Unije’s subtle social media hints toward OU so the offer obviously means something. How much? Yea, find that out later.
Marshall (Texas) High C Chasen Hines
A recent offer, but nowhere close to knowing where Hines and OU stand at the moment.
Midwest City (Okla.) High DE/OLB Jalen Redmond
OU made the offer last month and has developed the best relationship with Redmond by far of any school. Sooners sitting pretty as can be right now.
Detroit Cass Tech CB Kalon Gervin
Want to say up, really do, but it’s all dependent on Gervin making that trip to Norman either for a junior day or spring practice/game. He’s talked about it for a while.
OKC McGuinness OT Owen Condon
Through no fault of his own, but Bill Bedenbaugh might look at other guys first before coming back to Condon. And if he hits on them, just wouldn’t be in the cards.
