The Oklahoma Sooners latest offer in the 2024 recruiting cycle goes out to Cincinnati, Ohio, native Ted Hammond. He plays defensive end for St. Xavier High School.
At 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, he looks the part of a strong side defensive end who can play in three- and four-man fronts at the collegiate level. Hammond has 16 Power Five offers, including the Oklahoma Sooners.
His profile has come on strong of late, picking up the Sooners’ offer on Sunday and an offer from Michigan on Friday. With his size and ability, it’s only a matter of time before his Power Five offers number in the 25-30 range.
Hammond is a powerful player who displays fantastic gap integrity. He’s relentless in pursuit. He does a nice job stringing out plays in the run game. His size allows him to play over the center as the nose tackle or as the defensive end in three-man alignments. He looks best suited to play defensive end on early downs and kick inside to play defensive tackle on passing downs.
