Four-star defensive back Justin Broiles, who has been committed to Oklahoma since March, signed a financial aid agreement with the Sooners on Saturday. The Oklahoma City (John Marshall HS) product is listed as the No. 22 cornerback in the 247 Composite rankings.
Additionally, three-star tight end Jeremiah Hall signed a financial aid agreement with Oklahoma over the weekend. Both are expected to be at OU in the spring.
Broiles is unique in the fact that he has the potential to play either cornerback or safety at the collegiate level. Known for his physical play and open-field tackling, he also saw some time at wide receiver in high school. The Sooners beat out the likes of Alabama, Michigan and Texas among countless others to land the coveted defensive back.
Jeremiah Hall originally committed to OU last June before visiting Norman the weekend of the Ohio State game. The Charlotte (Vance HS) product, currently 27th at his position according to Rivals and 247, fielded offers from NC State, Pitt and Maryland before the Sooners got his commitment last summer. Hall is a fun player to watch, and I think we can expect to see him in a role similar to that of Dimitri Flowers in the future.
Broiles and Hall join Levi Draper, Creed Humphrey, Kenneth Murray and Trey Sermon as the 2017 Sooner commits to have already signed financial aid agreements. JuCo prospects Marquise Brown and Marcelias Sutton have signed letters of intent with Oklahoma.
