The dominos are starting to fall for the Oklahoma Sooners who’ve received several commitments over the last 11 days. They’ve jumped from 45th in the country to No. 18 according to 247Sports team recruiting rankings with the additions of four-star wide receiver Jaquaize Pettaway and four-star offensive tackle Cayden Green.
Green becomes the third offensive lineman in the Sooners 2023 recruiting class, joining Joshua Bates and Heath Ozaeta as the Sooners look to build Bill Bedenbaugh’s offensive line room.
Oklahoma looks to just be getting started in the month of July with the Sooners favored to land offensive lineman Logan Howland on Saturday and Adepoju Adebawore on Sunday.
Much to the chagrin of Texas fans, the Sooners look to be headed for another top 10 recruiting class after Brent Venables helped the Sooners get into the top 10 in the 2022 cycle. Oklahoma is continuing to prove that it’s a destination for highly-rated prospects and the combination of Brent Venables and Jeff Lebby provide a history of success to attract prospects.
It’s been a great week for the Sooners in the recruiting trail and Cayden Green’s commitment on Friday evening kicked off what looks like will be a big weekend for the University of Oklahoma.
Let’s see how social media reacted to the news of Cayden Green’s commitment.
Trending to Top 10
#Sooners now with 202.69 composite points for the 2023 class on @247Sports.
That puts them 18th overall, with a potentially HUGE weekend ahead that COULD put #OU in the top 10 of composite rankings.
ALSO, end of July could put #Oklahoma in top 5 if things work out perfectly. pic.twitter.com/lzuW87NSKY

Sooners killing it in Kansas City
And it should be noted, OU isn’t likely done in KC. The Sooners are trending HEAVILY for Adepoju Adebawore, who @On3Recruits ranks as the No. 1 player in Missouri. The @On3sports Recruiting Prediction Machine is at 96.1% for the Sooners with him. https://t.co/O2ksRD8jnQ

Greetings from Cayden Green
Dear Sooner nation…

Building momentum on the recruiting trail has been a #Sooners talking point for weeks. That time has come. OL Cayden Green is the fifth commitment in 11 days. He’s a top 50 player in the country.
Big time pick up for @OU_CoachB.
