As the Summer recruiting season continues to heat up, the Oklahoma Sooners found themselves on another top recruits’ list of top destinations. This time it was four-star safety Zion Branch including the Oklahoma Sooners in his top five schools.
Branch, a 6-2 safety out of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, included the Sooners and the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers, USC Trojans, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. It’s no coincidence that he’s arguably chosen the top school in each of the Power 5 conferences in the FBS.
Already the number five recruiting class in the country according to 247 Sports, Oklahoma has a chance to continue its climb if they’re able to add 2022’s number four safety according to the 247 Sports composite rankings.
Whether the Oklahoma Sooners can land Zion Branch, one thing is clear; they’re now players for the top defensive players in the country. Because of the impact of Alex Grinch and the improvements in the defense, the Sooners are now positioned to be at the table for the nation’s best defensive players.
