A nearly a year ago, Arjei Henderson and Theo Wease backed away from commitments to the Oklahoma Sooners with the intent of reevaluating their recruitment. Henderson announced his decision to re-commit to the program on Friday, and Wease has now followed suit.
The Allen, Texas, standout is listed as the No. 1 receiver in the country and No. 1 player in Texas by Rivals while being listed as the No. 5 WR in the 247Composite rankings. Wease, who stands at 6’3”, is one of the better jump-ball receivers you’ll see at that level, but he’s also a well-rounded player who runs fantastic routes. SB Nation’s Alex Kirshner was able to watch him at the Under Armour Dallas camp this past weekend and spoke highly of his ability to get open.
“Wease is currently a Composite four-star, but he looks like a five-star to me. He’s a precise route runner and has a really sticky pair of hands. He regularly cooked a pretty talented crop of defensive backs, though he missed out on some long catches because of under-thrown balls by the quarterbacks at the camp.”
Wease joins Henderson and fellow blue-chip Texan Trejan Bridges in a 2019 wide receiver class that is unmatched by any school in the country at this point. Oklahoma also has a commitment from the nation’s No. 1 quarterback in Spencer Rattler and a big-time TE in Austin Stogner. If this holds, Big 12 defensive coordinators are in for a world of hurt.
