The Oklahoma Sooners continue to hit home runs on the recruiting trail. This time getting a commitment from 2022 4-star athlete Gentry Williams. Getting Williams’ commitment is significant as the Sooners landed the top player in the state of Oklahoma for the 2022 recruiting cycle.

Williams joins a recruiting class that was previously ranked eighth in the nation, but will jump Ohio State for the seventh spot in 247Sports team recruiting rankings for 2022.

A true “athlete,” Gentry Williams has experience lining up all over the field including quarterback during his time playing high school football. The Oklahoma Sooners plan to put him on Alex Grinch’s defense as a cornerback. His size, championship-level track speed, ball skills, and competitiveness will make him a welcomed addition to an Oklahoma secondary that continues to add top-tier talent.

Though the Oklahoma Sooners were in a good place with Williams, there were strong pushes from USC and Florida to acquire the Tulsa native.

As the Oklahoma Sooners continue to build their defense, getting top home-grown defensive talent is key. It’s an indication that the narrative about the Oklahoma Sooners defense is changing. Despite giving up 79 points combined the last couple of games, the Sooners are making progress.
