Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: 4-star OT Brey Walker officially signs with OU

Lincoln Riley has found one of his next stars on the offensive line in the promising Oklahoma product.

The class of 2018 has officially added the state of Oklahoma’s top offensive prospect in tackle Brey Walker, who has signed a letter of intent with the Oklahoma Sooners on Wednesday. The longtime commit who played his senior season at Westmoore (Moore, Okla.) is a mammoth, 6-foot-7, 330-pound, tackle built to take over the reigns as the offensive line’s leader up front.

How he fits in

Originally at Southmoore (Moore, Okla.) through his junior season, Walker, the No. 28 overall player in the nation according to 247Sports Composite Ranking, has been committed to Oklahoma since November 28, 2015. Walker is similar in size to Orlando Brown and Phil Loadholt and has the talent, footwork and power to match. He is the complete, comprehensive offensive lineman who will fit in right away with the Sooners, and has all the makings of a star in the years to come.

There was a little doubt swirling around recently that Walker may possibly shift his allegiance to Texas A&M. Walker had forged a relationship with Jimbo Fisher at Florida State and indicated the Sooners could see a delay in him signing this week, or worse, things could be up in the air with his commitment. That all now lays by the wayside, as the four-star prospect assured Lincoln Riley and company he was as committed to OU as ever before.

But Walker returned from his trip even more sure of his decision to become a Sooner.

“I found out Texas A&M is just not the place for me,” Walker said. “It's nice and everything was cool, but Texas A&M, it wasn't the place for me. I feel like being at home still.” – Brooke Pryor, The Oklahoman

The Sooners have dodged a bullet, if there was any real doubt in Walker’s commitment wavering in recent days. With him anchoring the offensive line, the Sooners now have a lead blocker and pass protector who could become one of the nation’s best offensive tackles in due time. Brey Walker chose the Sooners over Florida State, Texas A&M, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska and Oklahoma State, among others.
