The Oklahoma Sooners’ next two recruiting classes took a bit of a hit in the wake of Lincoln Riley’s departure. From the 2022 and 2023 recruiting classes, they lost three five-star skill position players, who have since flipped to USC to follow the former Oklahoma Sooners head coach.
Over the past week, the Sooners have seen more players make affirmations of their commitment to the University of Oklahoma and four-star running back out of Littleton, Colorado is the latest to let it be known his plans haven’t changed.
In a not safe for work (NSFW) Twitter post, Gavin Sawchuk shared that he’s “not leaving” via a scene from the Leonardo DiCaprio film “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
It’s great news for the Oklahoma Sooners who’s running back depth chart looks a little thin heading into 2022. Kennedy Brooks is expected to head to the NFL, leaving Eric Gray and Marcus Major as the lone scholarship backs on the roster if Brooks moves on.
Sawchuk would have a great opportunity to get work early in his career if he’s able to get acclimated and work his way up the depth chart.
With the Oklahoma Sooners seemingly on the brink of announcing their next head coach, all of the news seems to be trending in the right direction with Gavin Sawchuk announcing his intentions to stay committed to the University of Oklahoma.
