There’s an adage about wherever there’s smoke, there’s fire. In the case of the Oklahoma Sooners, the smoke is a new Crystal Ball prediction from one of 247Sports’ biggest recruiting aficionados. The fire would be a possible commitment from a four-star offensive tackle out of Missouri.
Just yesterday, four-star tackle Cayden Green released the top five schools in his recruitment, which included Oklahoma. Less than a day later, the Sooners appear to be in the driver’s seat with two predictions from 247Sports Director Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong and national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu.
Offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh has been on Cayden Green for a year now offering him a scholarship back March 1, 2021. That foundation in addition to a visit earlier this month has the Sooners buzzing in the race for one of the country’s top 100 players.
A commitment from Green would be a much-needed win for Bedenbaugh, providing some momentum that could propel their efforts to recruit offensive linemen to fit new offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby’s veer-n-shoot system.
No commitment is imminent but multiple crystal balls a day after dropping a top five is nothing to turn the other way on.
