One set of eyeball emojis has been unveiled from Lincoln Riley’s account (with two left to be revealed), as the Oklahoma Sooners have gained the commitment of Washington D.C. native, Anton Harrison. After an environment like Sunday’s, along with Bill Bedenbaugh needing 1-2 more bodies on his offensive line, Harrison made the decision to commit to OU over schools such as Michigan, Penn State, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and others.
To me, Harrison translates more towards a guard in Bedenbaugh’s scheme, as he has a very powerful punch and long arms. He can be a mauler in run blocking, but I don’t believe his feet are quite quick enough to play either tackle position. Regardless, he is a behemoth of a man and is another prototypical Bedenbaugh offensive lineman.
Harrison is now the fourth offensive line to commit to the Sooners during the 2020 recruiting cycle, and he certainly won’t be the last. Lincoln Riley knows that the battles are won in the trenches, and his ongoing collection of high-caliber players will continue to produce major results. Harrison is marked as the No. 20 overall OT and the No. 221 player in the country per the 247Composite rankings. This commitment puts the Sooners at 16 for the current 2020 cycle and ranks them No. 14 in the 247Composite Team Rankings. The Sooners are currently No. 2 in the Big 12 for the recruiting cycle behind Texas after UT’s recent push.
