Boom. Another one. Arlington (TX) Seguin standout Xavion Brice has announced his commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners and is another massive athlete in the 2022 recruiting class. Brice can play quarterback and wide receiver, but he is gaining traction as a legit DB in the DFW Metroplex. Alex Grinch, with depth developed in his DB unit, is continually taking on athletes with tons of upside talent in order to completely apply his defensive philosophy while he is at OU. Brice committed to the Sooners over institutions such as Baylor, Texas, Missouri, and several others.
Like most defensive backs under Alex Grinch, he continues to add tall trees into his backfield. Brice commits to the Sooners with a frame at 6’1, 175lbs and is being recruited as a safety. The talented athlete has great hands, instincts and ball skills. He is a long, rangy athlete and it’s always 100% important to acknowledge that skill can be taught, not size and length. I expect Brice to get far more buzz as the 2021-22 HS football season progresses.
Brice is now the Sooners’ 11th commit of the 2022 recruiting cycle and is the second “athlete” that has committed today. Currently, Xavion Brice is rated as the No. 92 athlete in the country, and the No. 148 player in the state of Texas, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. This is Alex Grinch’s recruiting and evaluation — “Effort? Long and rangy? You might belong in Norman as an Oklahoma defensive back.”
