It was a big week in Norman for the Oklahoma Sooners who spent time hosting players of all ages for multiple camps, with the high school camp already reaping the reward with the commitment of four-star wide receiver Keyon Brown.
The biggest event of the week came in the ChampU BBQ, where the Sooners football program hosted players from the 2023 class, many for official visits. 2023 takes center stage for the next eight months as the Oklahoma Sooners attempt to lock in commitments through 2023’s national signing day next February.
Though he still has several official visits to attend, top 10 offensive line prospect Cayden Green was in Norman for his official visit with the Sooners. He’s received numerous projections to land with Oklahoma over the last couple of months.
As they look to “win Oklahoma,” the Sooners also had in four-star athlete Jacobe Johnson out of Mustang. Johnson, the No. 2 player in the state according is projected to land with Oklahoma as well. Johnson and several other visitors shared thoughts on their time with Oklahoma with 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong.
It was a great week for Oklahoma Football. They’ll have more official visits coming this week, but let’s take a look at some of the best social media reactions from recruits, parents, and coaches.
I had a great morning with @OU_Football at this year’s recruiting breakfast. @CoachVenables and his staff are creating something special here at @UofOklahoma. Looking forward to fall and the start of the 2022 season! pic.twitter.com/dyMhTQsizD

Under the Radar Player to Watch
2023 Norman North RB has quietly become a player of interest to the #Sooners staff. McKown holds offers from Army and Air Force, with several other P5 schools monitoring him.
Not often that a school will use an OV on a player who doesn’t yet have the offer. This says a lot. https://t.co/ItCe9lFJwf
