Whether you expected this one or not, this is HUGE news for Sooners fans. Moments ago, 4-star DB, Brendan Radley-Hiles (Bookie), announced his commitment to the Oklahoma during the Army All-American Game. He becomes the highest rated cornerback prospect the Sooners have landed since Gabe Lynn in 2009 (later moved to safety).

Bookie is hands down one of the most dynamic prospects in this class. If you watched some of the practices leading up to the Army All-American, you saw his level of athleticism allows him to play both wide receiver and cornerback. However, he will be primarily used on the defensive side of the ball at the next level.
Radley-Hiles is composite 4-star prospect ranking 48 nationally and 7th at his position. Important to note that Rivals has Bookie ranked as a 5-star prospect that ranks 17th overall and 4th at his position. With his commitment, the Sooners’ 2018 class moves up above Clemson to 8th overall and 2nd in the Big 12.
