Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners’ staff hosted Jalin Conyers June 18 after being in touch quite often since March of 2019. As expected, it appears he has found a home in Norman, as the 2020 tight end from Gruver, Texas and has chosen OU over Georgia, Ohio State and others.
Conyers, who could also fit as a Y-reciever/TE, has the perfect frame for what Lincoln Riley is looking for in a dynamic H-Back athlete that he’s been missing since Dimitri Flowers. Conyers is 6’4, 220 lbs. with quick feet, good hands for both blocking and catching, and an instinctual player in finding the ball and open spaces on offense. 2020 commit Mikey Henderson is considered an H-back, but both are versatile enough to find a niche in the offense.
Conyers is Lincoln Riley’s first legitimate “tight end” of the class, and he’s a good one (ranked nationally at No. 117 and No. 2 at the position). After the recent commitment of Andrew Raym, this puts Oklahoma’s class at 15 players and has the Sooners at No. 10 in the 247 Composite Team Rankings as well as atop the Big 12.
