NORMAN — Oklahoma picked up its 27th member of the 2024 class with Friday afternoon commitment from Union (Tulsa) cornerback Devon Jordan.
Here’s everything you need to know:
- Jordan is a senior at Tulsa’s Union High School and picks the Sooners over Alabama, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and TCU.
- OU initially offered Jordan on an unofficial visit to Norman. He took an official visit to OSU in June and held 14 offers at the time of his commitment.
- Jordan’s Union improved to 7-1 in a 31-10 win at Edmond Santa Fe Thursday night. He also competes in track and field and recorded a fifth place finish in the 100-meter dash in the Class 6A state championship earlier this year.
What does Jordan’s commitment mean for OU?
Jay Valai and the Sooners stocked up on cornerbacks in the 2023 class with signatures from Makari Vickers, Jacobe Johnson and Jasiah Wagoner. OU appears ready to follow suit in 2024 with Jordan joining four-star Jeremiah Newcombe (Queen Creek, Arizona) and Eli Bowen, brother of Sooners freshman Peyton Bowen, among the program’s cornerback commits.
OU inked three top-35 cornerbacks in 2023. Through Jordan’s commitment, they’ve got two more in the upcoming class with two months before the early signing period.
The Sooners added another building block to the future of the program’s secondary Friday.
