Commitments have a tendency to sneak up on you and happen when you least expect it. That was the case tonight as the Sooners picked up a commitment from JUCO WR Ryan Parker. Ryan originally committed to TCU out of high school, but ended up at Tyler Junior College.
Bob Pryzbolo of Scout.com confirmed the commitment with the following tweet.
That was nuts. OK, getting ready to talk to Ryan Parker now, NEW #Sooners commit, who is indeed from "817" area— Bob Przybylo (@BPrzybylo) April 27, 2015
Ryan Parker's commitment was hard to confirm because the Sooner coaches just tweet out area codes with commitments. Bob Stoops tweeted this out and then we were left to figure out who he was talking about.
In the end it was Ryan Parker.
Here is the some video of Ryan in action. (This film was in 2014 when he was a senior in high school).
Parker is the 4th commitment in the class of 2016.
