It will be an important weekend for Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners, who host rival Oklahoma State tomorrow night. They will also host three five-star quarterbacks from across the country, for rivals.
Paetow (Texas) 5-star DE David Hicks
At the center of Oklahoma’s recruiting efforts this weekend is Hicks (6-foot-4, 270 pounds), who recently dedicated to Texas A&M. However, the Aggies have been hit by a series of decommitments recently, including five-star defensive end Anthony Hill. Hicks could be next. He is ranked as the No. 1 defensive end in the state and the nation and No. 9 overall in that class.
IMG Academy (Fla.) 5-star DT David Stone
The Sooners could land two five-star linemen if they play their cards right this weekend. They will also host the second ranked DL in the class of 2024 at Stone (6-foot-4, 270 pounds). He has 25 other suggestions to choose from, however, including one from Michigan State.
Guyer (Texas) 5-star S Peyton Bowen
Oklahoma will also be courting a potentially critical piece for the back end of its defense. Ranked as the No. 2 safety in the class of 2023, Bowen (6-foot-0, 185 pounds) committed to Notre Dame on Jan. 1 and reportedly helping them hire other players. However, his decision is still not final and the Sooners can still flip him.
