Oklahoma Recruiting Tracker: Talented OT Staying With the Sooners

The recruiting impact of Lincoln Riley's shocking move to USC has already been felt for the Sooners.

Friday, Dec. 3: 9:36 a.m.

On Monday, in-state offensive tackle Jacob Sexton began to rally the troops for Oklahoma's 2022 class. 

Friday, talented offensive tackle Jake Taylor from Las Vegas doubled down, and it appears that he's completely on board with the Sooners despite Riley's departure. 

Keeping both Sexton and Taylor on board will be key in helping replenish OU's offensive line, which has played below expectations the past two years.

The 2023 carnage continues. 

Oklahoma loses their verbal pledge from 5-star athlete Makai Lemon, teammate of former OU quarterback commit Malachi Nelson.

Monday, Nov. 29: 6:53 p.m.

Another 2022 recruit reaffirms his commitment with Oklahoma. 

Offensive tackle Jacob Sexton appears to be trying to rally the troops with signing day just around the corner on Dec. 15.

Another blow to the 2022 class drops this Monday morning.

Big day for Murray, who wrongly took it in the teeth for the Camar Wheaton situation last year. 

Sunday, Nov. 28: 10:57 p.m.

Finally, some good news for Sooner fans. 

Teammate of Malachi Nelson, 2023 wide receiver Deandre Moore, just reaffirmed his pledge to OU. 

A small step for Oklahoma, and a pretty good indication that DeMarco Murray will not be following Riley to Los Angeles.

Sunday, Nov. 28: 9:23 p.m.

The early damage has been to the 2023 class, but the first shoe has dropped for the Class of 2022. 

Linebacker Kobie McKinzie, Riley's first commit in the 2022 class, has decommitted from Oklahoma. 

National Signing Day is rapidly approaching on Dec. 15, and interim head coach Bob Stoops has a lot of work to do if the Sooners have any hope of keeping some semblance of the 2022 class intact. 

Sunday, Nov. 28: 9:10 p.m.

Oklahoma just lost their future quarterback. 

2023 QB 5-star Malachi Nelson announced his decommittment as well. Nelson lives in Southern California, and is great friends with fellow 5-star Makai Lemon. This could get ugly, fast. 

Sunday, Nov. 28: 7:28 p.m.

The 2023 class is falling apart. 

Running back Treyaun Webb is the next casualty, as he also has announced his decommittment from Oklahoma.

Sunday, Nov. 28: 6:31 p.m.

The first domino to fall is Brandon Inniss

The 5-star wide receiver is the first recruiting departure, and the 2023 star has decommitted from Oklahoma.
