Oklahoma Sooners lose football commit following Jeff Lebby's departure

Oklahoma offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby has accepted the head coaching job at Mississippi State

The Oklahoma Sooners experienced a whirlwind weekend.

After beating TCU 69-45 on Friday, Oklahoma offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby accepted the vacant head coaching position at Mississippi State University.

One day later, the Sooners lost a commitment, as Timber Creek (Texas) three-star wide receiver Dozie Ezukanma announced his decommitment from the program:

"After careful consideration and reflection, I have made the decision to decommit from the University of Oklahoma," he wrote. "This choice is not made lightly. I'd like to thank OU and the coaching staff for the incredible opportunity given to me." 

As a senior, the Texas product hauled in 65 receptions for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns.

While Ezukanma has only recently decommitted, Texas Tech will be a team to watch, as well as Mississippi State if Lebby tries to re-connect with his former pledge. 

Overall, Oklahoma's 2024 recruiting class is ranked No. 7 nationally
