Earlier today 2022 elite OLB, Kobie McKinzie, committed to Oklahoma via Twitter. This is a huge pick up for the Sooners. This 6′ 3″, 227lbs sophomore is currently the 38th-best player and no. 1 OLB in the 2022 class (per 247 sports).
McKinzie is a Texas native who currently plays at Cooper High School (TX). In 2018 McKinzie was named the District 3-5A-II Defensive Newcomer of the Year (freshman) and in 2019 he was a first-team all-district selection (sophomore).
We won’t see McKinzie until 2022, but the commitment of an elite defensive player shows that Grinch’s labor is paying off.
