Lincoln riley continues to attract some of the country’s most talented offensive weapons.
After a real freshman Marvin Mims stepped in last year to lead Oklahoma to reception, Riley signed talented wide strikeouts Mario williams and Cody jackson.
Williams, a native of Plant City, Fla., Was ranked No. 24 in last year’s SI99 overall, a ranking of the nation’s top 99 by Sports Illustrated All-American.
Fast forward to the 2022 recruiting cycle, and Riley has another elite verbally engaged wide receiver.
Luther’s burden, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound star from St. Louis, MO, was ranked second-best receiver in 2022 by the SIAA.
“The OU’s engagement is masterful at the climax and on contested catches, with great physics in focus, but it provides a counter to his game as a player after the catch with great vision and moves into the game. ‘space “, Director of Recruitment SIAA John Garcia Jr. said de Fardeau. “The bigger prospect has better top speed than his size suggests, a feature that goes well with his ability to take an efficient, controlled path to where the ball will ultimately be.
“He’s a complete, classic WR1 prospect with the size and overall athleticism to challenge a high school’s advantage and depth.”
Things could have been even sweeter for the Sooners, as the former verbal commit Talyn Shettron was ranked just behind Burden at No.3. The Edmond Santa Fe star moved from the OU to the Oklahoma State Cowboys at the end of June so he could fulfill his dream of playing college football with his brother.
The other release of the 2022 class, Jordan hudson, was not ranked in the top 25 of the SIAA.
Oklahoma also has the tight end verbal pledge Jason llewellyn, as well as a dynamic all-purpose back Raleek Brown, both of which should add to Riley’s explosive passing game.
Pair catching talent with the high level of quarterback play the Sooners have enjoyed since Riley’s arrival on campus, and OU’s offensive dominance doesn’t appear to be waning any time soon.
