The Sooners had to fend off recruiting efforts from the UCLA Bruins in the last month to earn Powers’ pledge, but the relationship built with the Sooners coaching staff. Brent Venables and Brandon Hall have been active in their pursuit of the talented safety prospect out of Ohio.
Powers was in Norman for the Sooners win over UCF this past weekend. Over the last week, a flurry of predictions from every recruiting outlet poured in favoring Oklahoma.
In Powers, the Sooners get a versatile safety prospect who has the speed and athleticism to play deep middle safety and the size and physicality to play in the box. Still just 17 years old (won’t turn 18 until June of 2024), there’s the potential to add to his 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame.
