4- Star LB, Clayton Smith, took to twitter to announce he’s headed to Norman.
Smith is a 4-star OLB according to 247 Sports and is ranked as the no. 8 OLB and no. 107 recruit in the class of 2021. Oklahoma was competing with a number of schools for this recruit and ultimately beat out FSU, UK, and Texas in the final stretch. Not only are the Sooners finally getting some solid defensive talent they beat out Texas to get it. It’s also worth noting Smith is A TEXAS NATIVE, which makes this whole thing even better.
According to 247 Sports, Smith is a”high-major defensive prospect who fits multiple spots in different schemes. Possesses very high ceiling that could lead to multi-year Power Five starter status and early-round NFL Draft potential.
This is undoubtedly a great grab for the Sooners and a nice F U to Texas. As I predicted, the Sooners are on their way to a monster 2021 class.
