Norman, OK--As the college football season gets closer to the end, many recruits are starting to narrow down their options for college and more importantly, they're narrowing down who they'll play college football for. The Oklahoma Sooners are having a good, but not great, season. They've lost two games by a combined 6 points (#1 Georgia Tech & Texas A&M). Despite the two losses, recruits know Oklahoma is a school that will always be playing for championships, playing in nationally televised games and fighting for the best recruits in the nation. Today they announced the hard commitments of three new recruits that have decided to join the Sooner Nation. They are:
1) David Jackson, 4*, T, Schuyler, NE: Jackson is the 11th rated Tackle by EA Sports. The 6'4", 343 pound beheameth chose OU over Miami, Nebraska, North Carolina and Michigan. Most felt he was a hard lean to OU all along which kept the schools named above from officially offereing the future All-Conference tackle. Jackson is expected to redshirt in 2012.
2) John Williams, 2*, G, Kenmore, WA: Williams (6'5", 277lbs) comes to Oklahoma from Washington state and is rated the #83 guard by EA Sports. Many were surprised to hear the Sooners had offered Williams but the Sooner staff saw some of his workouts and felt like his Pass Block skills (B+), Run Block skills (A-) and Strength (B+) were legit and felt he'd excel at OU, esp. once he got more experience playing guard. Williams will likely redshirt in 2012. He chose OU over offers from Washington St., Syracuse, Nevada and Connecticut. He also had a late push from Penn St. but they backed off several weeks ago. The Sooners feel they have found a diamond in the rough with Williams.
3) Tim Daniels, 4*, T, Erwin, NC: Daniels (6'2", 306lbs) comes to Oklahoma from North Carolina. He is rated as the 9th best tackle in this class. He is known as having good footwork and is rated highly at both pass blocking and run blocking. Daniels is expected to redshirt in 2012.
