The Sooners already have a stellar offensive line class, but will look to close out in style with Josh Wariboko. Josh's recruitment has been a roller coaster ride. From an early Sooner commitment, to comments about having little to no interest in the Sooners after his decommitment, it's been a wild ride. The Sooners climbed their way back in and now sit in Wariboko's top 3 along with UCLA and Ohio State.
Four-star OL Josh Wariboko still adamant #OhioState is slight leader over #UCLA and #Oklahoma @B2GSports— Adam Gorney (@adamgorney) January 23, 2015
Honestly, I don't believe the Ohio State position as leader for Wariboko. This appears to be shaping up to be a UCLA/Sooner battle as National Signing quickly approaches.
I will go on record saying that the Sooners land Wariboko. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in Norman this weekend to check out the Sooners one more time.
UCLA does however pose a real threat. They have several things going for them.
1- Josh's younger brother Max Wariboko currently has a UCLA offer. Both he and Josh could play together at UCLA.
2- UCLA has recruited Josh hard. They have pursured him relentlessly and offer a great school, in a great location for a young athlete.
I do not however feel that in the end these outweigh the hometown Sooners. There is little doubt that Josh grew up a Sooner fan and his parents are even alums.
Wariboko will decide on National Signing Day and I predict he will sign his LOI with the Sooners.
