The Oklahoma Sooners had added yet another key piece to their 2019 recruiting class, as four-star offensive tackle Stacey Wilkins has announced his commitment to OU. The Camden (Ark.) Fairview standout has chosen the Sooners over the home-state Razorbacks, Alabama, Texas and others.
Wilkins, who had been considered an OU lean for months, is listed as the No. 195 overall player in the 247Composite Rankings. He brings OU’s 2019 total to 17 commitments and is the third pledge along the offensive line. With Wilkins, EJ Ndoma-Ogar and Marcus Alexander now on board, the final OL piece would appear to be one offensive tackle. As far as that position is concerned, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne prospect Jonah Tauanu’u appears to be the primary target. Bill Bedenbaugh is doing yet another bang-up job with OL recruiting in this cycle, and it’ll be interesting to see how he’ll cap it off.
Oklahoma’s 2019 class now is now No. 4 in the nation according to the 247Composite Team Rankings. The class also sits at sixth in the Rivals Team Rankings.
At around 6’7” and 280 lbs., Wilkins is a long-armed prospect who projects to be particularly adept as a pass protector at the next level. That’s not to say, however, that he isn’t capable of mauling defenders in the running game.
As was the case with now-fellow 2019 commits Spencer Rattler, Theo Wease, Arjei Henderson. Trejan Bridges, Austin Stogner, EJ Ndoma-Ogar, Jaden Davis and Woodi Washington, Wilkins was a participant at The Opening Finals in Frisco. Friday was quite the day for Wilkins, who was also invited to play in the 2019 Army All-American Bowl.
