Scouts have been eyeing Jacob Sexton at Deer Creek for the last two years, wondering if he’d become a legit OK Preps star— and he hasn’t disappointed. With rumors swirling that Sexton would possibly commit to the Texas Longhorns, the talented offensive lineman put those rumblings to bed as he commit to the University of Oklahoma to stay home and be developed by Bill Bedenbaugh. Sexton chose the Oklahoma Sooners over programs such as Alabama, Texas A&M, Texas, Notre Dame, and several others.

Sexton is currently listed at a massive frame of 6’5, 285lbs, probably one of the more ready-to-go prospects on the OL physically in a short while under Bedenbaugh. Regardless of his opponent, he bears down on the player in front of him with a high motor and a mean streak. Sexton is also a three sport athlete— in addition to football, he’s also a wrestler and competes in the shot put as well as discus. Besides listening to his coaches on the football field, wrestling from a young age helped him understand leverage, keeping pad level low, and finishing the play.

Sexton is now the Sooners’ 9th commit of the 2022 recruiting cycle and is the second offensive lineman that Bedenbaugh was able to secure. Currently, Jacob Sexton is rated as the No. 236 overall player in the country, the No. 24 Offensive Tackle, and the No. 5 player in the state of Oklahoma, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.

With Fourth of July being tomorrow, I’d expect plenty more, dare I say, FIREWORKS in the very near future.
