Earlier this week, Oklahoma Sooners head coach gave fans a polite heads-up on the recruiting front. The news finally came Thursday evening, as 2020 Frisco (Texas) Lone Star wide receiver Marvin Mims announced that he had switched his commitment from Stanford to OU.

Mims, a four-star prospect who had also received offers from the likes of Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee and Texas A&M, had been tracked by the Sooners for quite some time. With 2019 signees Jadon Haselwood, Theo Wease and Trejan Bridges better suited for the outside, Riley is in search of someone in the mold of a slot receiver. In this instance, the 5’11”, 161-pound Mims fits the bill. However, that’s not to say that Mims has to be limited to the slot, as big-play ability and high-pointing the ball are strengths of his game.
Mims’ commitment brings OU’s 2020 count to 18, with the class now ranked 10th nationally per 247Composite.
