Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting | 2017 WR Class Should Be Special

The Sooners currently have 7 commits for the class of 2017 (should be 8 by the end of the day). All of these commits are 4-star players, and includes WR Cedarian Lamb 6-3/175 from Richmond, TX.

However this is only the beginning as the Sooners are on their way to landing quite possibly their most talented WR class in Bob Stoops tenure. Here is a glimpse into what could be as we look into the crystal ball for the class of 2017.

4 - Star Omar Manning 6-3/200 from Lancaster, TX

This is likely an OU/TCU battle and at this point it's too close to call

Prediction: Not Sure

4 - Star Charleston Rambo 6-2/170 from Cedar Hill, TX.

I would be shocked if he isn't a Sooner before summer hits.

Prediction: OU

4 - Star Hunter Rison 5-11/190 from Ann Arbor, MI

Hunter is the son of former NFL star Andre Rison. Here is a list of his top schools. Look who is on top (even though no order is listed).


Prediction: OU

3 - Star Jalen Reagor 6-190 from Waxahachie, TX

Reagor will not be a 3 star for long as he has picked up offers from Bama, OU, and FSU recently. He was formerly a Red Raider commit, but that changed this week as he opened up his recruitment. He is my favorite WR recruit in the class of 2017.

Prediction: OU

3 - Star Paulson Adebo 6-1/175 from Mansfield, TX

Adebo might be better suited at corner, but there is no denying his abilities. He is another player that I expect to continue to rise in the rankings.

Predicition: OU

So with 1 committed wide receiver and 5 possible commits, how does this position shake out? Multiple things could happen. The Sooner could bring in Adebo as an athlete and if WR isn't a fit, then he could star as a cornerback. Also with recruiting, you never know about players de-committing. I expect the Sooners will take 4 in the class of 2017 and as of today I expect them to come from this list.
