Alex Grinch is continuing to grow more trees in his defensive backfield with the addition of Robert Spears-Jennings, an OK Preps product from Broken Arrow. Spears-Jennings may not be a huge name in the state of Oklahoma quite yet, but he fits exactly what Alex Grinch and Roy Manning want. The talented Athlete committed to the Oklahoma Sooners over schools such as Arkansas, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, and several others.
Spears-Jennings plays both wide receiver and defensive back— on all recruiting services, he’s even tabbed as a receiver. However, Alex Grinch is recruiting the Broken Arrow product as a DB because of his frame: 6’2, 195lbs! A DB with a frame that large with ball skills is 100% of what Grinch wants in his defense— one can coach skill, not size and physical frame. He catches the ball with his hands, not his chest, he’s incredibly physical even on the offensive side of the ball, and his burst of speed is always downhill.
Spears-Jennings is now the Sooners’ 10th commit of the 2022 recruiting cycle and is one of the several “fireworks” to pop off in favor of Oklahoma on this Fourth of July. Currently, Robert Spears-Jennings is rated as the No. 160 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 19 player in the state of Oklahoma, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
