Hawkins, rated as the top CB in Texas, is an athletic corner capable of 4.4 speed. OU Insiders James Hale has openly speculated that the Sooners were a strong lead on Hawkins. Saturday night it bacame official as he told OU coaches that he would no longer take visits and would inform other staffs of his commitment. Other finalists were: Texas, A&M, Florida and Miami. Hawkins was listed by OU coaches as one of their top prospects in the future Sooner secondary.
The Sooners are still looking for another corner to compliment Hawkins, as well as a safety with the head hunting instincts of an Brandon Everage or Roy Williams.
Hawkins gives the Sooners a great chance to kickstart another top Texas haul in 2002.
