The OU class of 2015 grew by one as Tyrell Jacobs let the world know via twitter that he has verbally committed to the Sooners.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>I&#39;m fully committed to Oklahouma sooners</p>&mdash; Tyrell Jacobs (@tyrelljacobs98) <a href="https://twitter.com/tyrelljacobs98/statuses/491268689501503488">July 21, 2014</a></blockquote>

You will have to forgive his spelling of Oklahoma :)

OU DLine Coach Jerry Montgomery confirmed the commit via twitter

Tyrell is 6'4" 260lbs. and plays for Rummel High School in Metairie, Lousiana. He chose the Sooners over offers from the likes of Tenn, Miss St., KState, Louisville, Ark, and Arizona St. With his size and the move to the 3-4 Jacobs would most like find his way on the field as a DE for the Sooners.

Here are a couple of pic of Tyrell with Coach Stoops and Montgomery.
