After attending the Party at the Palace on Friday night, projections began to roll in for 2023 four-star defensive end Colton Vasek to land with the Oklahoma Sooners. Those projections from each of the major recruiting services came to fruition Monday afternoon with the commitment of the Austin, Texas, native to the Sooners.

Vasek marks the second commitment for first-time defensive ends coach Miguel Chavis and the 19th commitment in the 2023 class for Brent Venables and the Sooners.

Vasek is a four-star player across the board and a top 200 prospect in the nation. He ranks as a top 50 player in the state of Texas and one of the 30-best edge prospects in the 2023 recruiting cycle.

 

From my scouting report over the weekend, here’s what I saw in Colton Vasek.

Vasek is a top-200 player in the 2023 recruiting cycle and has the size to be a dominant force off the edge for the Oklahoma Sooners. He has a great first step off the snap and shows fantastic play recognition. He does a great job setting the edge and shows fantastic effort in backside pursuit in the running game. As a pass rusher, he already displays several solid pass rush moves, and his length will help him gain an advantage on opposing offensive tackles at the next level.

 

After the commitment, the Sooners returned to No. 6 in the country ahead of Clemson but behind Notre Dame, Ohio State, Georgia, Alabama and Texas (for now).

With favorable projections incoming for five-star defensive lineman David Hicks, four-star defensive lineman Jordan Renaud, and four-star wide receiver Anthony Evans over the weekend, the Sooners have a chance to climb even higher as the recruiting cycle plays out.
