Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Chuck Filiaga Picks Michigan Over Oklahoma

The talented offensive tackle from Texas makes OU’s 2017 class even stronger

Student Sports

Chuck Filiaga, a four-star offensive tackle from Aledo, Texas, has committed to Michigan at the U.S. Army All-American Game. Filiaga is listed as the No. 98 overall player and No. 14 offensive tackle in the country. He also has offers from Oregon, Alabama, Auburn, Nebraska, Tennessee and Texas among others.

It would have been great to secure a commitment from Filiaga, OU recently received a pledge from Baton Rouge, La., offensive tackle Adrian Ealy, who is quite a talented player in his own right. As cool as a commitment at a high school all-star game can be, Ealy’s commitment was even cooler.

I wish Chuck luck at Michigan, where I’m sure he’ll be an absolute beast of an offensive tackle. As much as I would have liked OU to land Filiaga, Ealy’s commitment makes it much easier to handle. He’s a helluva football player and has great taste in movies, and you can’t ask for much more than that.
