It’s awfully early, but the 2023 recruiting class is shaping up to be something special. Today, the Oklahoma Sooners secured the commitment of Brandon Inniss, who comes from the Florida recruiting pipeline that Lincoln Riley has been trying to establish. The five-star wide receiver out of American Heritage in Ft. Lauderdale has offers from the who’s who of college football and chose the Sooners over schools such as Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and many more.

Inniss, the nation’s No. 1 WR in the 2023 class, is an elite athlete with incredible route-running abilities going into just his junior year of high school. He stands at a frame of 6’0” and 190lbs, and aggressively catches the ball in order to run downhill. He’s also a physical player who routinely beats double teams with the capabilities of becoming another gamebreaker— somebody that can simply take over games. Oklahoma has had its fair share of finesse receivers who make business decisions on the field (and I have zero issue with that!), but the opposite can be said for Inniss. The five-star recruit is probably ready for Power 5 football right now, but Lincoln Riley will have to wait two more years.
Inniss is Oklahoma’s sixth commitment for the 2023 recruiting class cycle. According to 247Sports Composite Rankings, he is the No. 1 receiver in the country, the No. 3 overall player from the state of Florida, and the No. 9 player overall in 2023. Needless to say, Dennis Simmons is a happy man right now. Although this seems like a broken record, it remains clear, the Oklahoma Sooners are loading themselves up with future NFL talent, not just D1 athletes.
