A disappointing week in Oklahoma’s offensive line room ended on a high note Friday when Eddy Pierre-Louis, one of the top uncommitted offensive line prospects in the 2024 class, gave his pledge to Oklahoma.

Here’s everything you need to know as the Sooners added another piece to their upcoming signing class days after Cayden Green’s departure: 

  • Pierre-Louis is a four-star prospect and the No. 11 interior offensive lineman in the nation, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. Among that group, Pierre-Louis was the top uncommitted prospect at the position five days out from the start of the early signing period on Dec. 20.
  • Pierre-Louis, a three-star athlete at Tampa Catholic (Florida) High School, is now the highest-ranked offensive line commit in the Sooners’ 2024 class according to the 247Sports composite rankings, ahead of four-star recruit Eugene Brooks and three-star prospects Isaiah Autry, Daniel Akinkunmi and Josh Aisosa
  • OU offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh was Pierre-Louis’ primary recruiter and visited with the 6-foot-3, 335-pound lineman in recent weeks. Pierre-Louis picked the Sooners over finalists Oregon, Miami, Texas A&M and UCF.
  • Pierre-Louis projects as a guard at the college level but has the size to play tackle, as well. He operated in both positions at Tampa Catholic, where Pierre-Louis also plays basketball and competes in the throwing event in track and field. Pierre-Louis is the brother of former Florida offensive tackle Richard Gouraige, who signed with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent earlier this year.
  • OU’s 2024 signing class ranked ninth in 247Sports’ team rankings before Pierre-Louis’ commitment Friday. The Sooners are expected to close out a signing class of 27-28 players when the early signing period opens Wednesday.
