Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / UCLA Decommit Looking at Sooners

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Cassius Peat 6'4" 235lbs. would go a long way to filling the need at OLB for the class of 2015. Most Sooner fans had written him off after he gave his verbal commitment to UCLA. This however all changed as Cassius Peat has know decommited from the Bruins.

Jason Jewell of was one of the many who confirmed this via twitter:

Cassius is from Tempe, AZ and plays for Corona Del Sol High School. Because the Sun Devils are his hometown team, most assume that ASU will be tough to beat. The Sooners however have continued to recruit Cassius and appear to still be in his recruitment. Expect the Sooner coaches to be in his house soon for an in-home visit.

What looked like a bleak finish at LB for the class of 2015 is starting to show some glimmer of hope. Landing a player like Cassius would be huge for the Sooners and their 3-4 defense.
