To call it a good day for Oklahoma would be a pretty massive understatement. After a pretty quiet start to 2018 for Oklahoma’s 2019 recruiting class (just one commitment in the year until today), the Sooners’ class got a massive boost today, as they secured commitments from three four-stars, two of which had previously committed but then decommitted from the class. Wide receivers Theo Wease, Arjei Henderson and safety Jamal Morris all committed to Oklahoma in the past few hours, giving their class a massive boost, and jumping it up to fourth in the country.

Wease is the highest ranked of the three new commitments, as he sits at 31st nationally, fourth in Texas, and fifth of all receivers. He committed to Oklahoma over 38 other offers, most notably from LSU, USC, Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M and Washington, among others. His official visit was today, and ultimately, being on campus was enough to convince him to commit. He has visits to LSU and USC scheduled, but I don’t expect him to take those.
Henderson is the second highest ranked of the group. Another former Sooner commit that ultimately rejoins the class (along with Wease), Henderson is ranked 52nd nationally, eighth in Texas, and as the 9th-best receiver. He committed to Oklahoma over 44 other offers; most notably from Oregon, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State. Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC and Washington, among others. He was also on a visit today, and I expect his commitment to stand as well.
Morris, the second defensive player to join the class, is ranked 274th nationally, 34th in Texas, and 19th among safeties. He held 18 other offers, from Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and USC among others. You’ll never believe it, but Morris was also on campus today, and thanks to the environment on campus today, and the recruitment of Kerry Cooks, Morris had seen enough, and was ready to shut down his recruitment.
