The Oklahoma Sooners had been picking up a lot of positive momentum in the 2024 recruiting class in recent weeks. And now they’ve received their first commitment on Saturday night. Cornerback Jeremiah Newcombe broke the ice for the 2024 class, becoming Oklahoma’s initial commit.
And that’s just the first domino to fall after a huge recruiting weekend that featured prospects from across the nation over the next three recruiting classes.
In the wake of the big-time weekend, several crystal ball predictions came through favoring the Sooners. One of those was for the recently reclassified 2024 five-star TE Davon Mitchell. Parker Thune of OUInsider at 247Sports became the first 247Sports recruiting analyst to issue a projection on Mitchell.
The talented tight end prospect has elite athleticism and ball skills. Here he is receiving a pass from four-star quarterback Michael Hawkins in 7-on-7 this weekend. The two have a unique connection that could spell trouble for SEC defenses if the Sooners were to land both 2024 prospects.
