Three players in the 2023 recruiting class have recently been projected to Oklahoma.

Wide receiver Ashton Cozart out of Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas, defensive end and edge rusher Bai Jobe out of Community Christian School in Norman, Okla., and running back Erik McCarty out of McAlester High School in McAlester, Okla.

OUInsider‘s Brandon Drumm of 247Sports put in a crystal-ball projection for Cozart to the Sooners late Tuesday night.

Cozart is a 6-foot-3, 180 pound wide receiver that is ranked the No. 63 player nationally by On3, No. 97 by ESPN and No. 120 by 247Sports. All of those services have Cozart listed as a four-star receiver.

Rivals rates Cozart as a three-star wide receiver and the nation’s 48th-best receiver.

SoonerScoop‘s Josh McCuistion also issued a Rivals Forecast for Jobe to the Sooners on Tuesday.

Jobe is listed as a three-star recruit and the nation’s 23rd-highest rated weakside defensive end according to Rivals.

The 6-foot-4, 215 pound recruit is ranked as a four-star prospect by 247Sports, On3 and ESPN.

247Sports ranks Jobe as the nation’s 60th player overall and No. 7 edge rusher, On3 rates Jobe as the No. 192 player nationally and No. 23 edge rusher and ESPN lists Jobe as the No. 244 player in the 2023 class and 33rd-best defensive end.

Lastly, SoonerScoop’s McCuistion and On3’s Hudson Standish of InsideTexas put in projections for McCarty to Oklahoma over the last few days.

Standish put in his On3 Prediction for McCarty to Oklahoma on Monday and McCuistion submitted a Rivals Forecast on Tuesday.

McCarty is a 6-foot-2, 180 pound running back at McAlester and he’s listed as a three-star recruit according to Rivals.

Of course, two of these three projections include players from the Sooner State. Keeping in-state talent continues to be an early recruiting push from Venables and his staff.
