Sooners receive Rivals futurecast for 2024 QB Michael Hawkins

·2 min read

We’ve talked in great detail at Sooners Wire about Oklahoma’s 2023 five-star quarterback commit Jackson Arnold. He’s had a heck of a year from a development standpoint and has gone from four-star to consensus five-star player in 2023.

However, the buck doesn’t stop there. With Jeff Lebby in charge of Oklahoma’s offensive endeavors, there are new philosophies on and off the field that differ from Lincoln Riley.

Riley was against recruiting quarterbacks in consecutive years. Jeff Lebby and head coach Brent Venables are taking a different approach. Both cited competition as a reason for it and in many ways it’s hard to disagree.

With that, Oklahoma’s already circling a few quarterbacks for the 2024 class despite the commitment of one of 2023’s best signal-callers.

Oklahoma received another favorable prediction for 2024 quarterback and Sooners legacy Michael Hawkins. Parker Thune issued a crystal ball projection minutes after Hawkins announced his Oklahoma offer. This time it’s Josh McCuistion of SoonersScoop.com providing a Rivals futurecast favoring the Sooners.

Hawkins is the son of Mike Hawkins, a former cornerback at Oklahoma during the 2002 season. The defensive coordinator for that 2002 team? Current Oklahoma head coach Brent Venables. Lebby was a student assistant during that 2002 season as well.

Hawkins is a dual-threat QB and would fit well in Jeff Lebby’s system. He has the athleticism to make plays in the QB run game with his feet but has a lively arm and throws a beautiful deep ball. Hawkins is a four-star across most recruiting services, but he still has two full seasons of high school ball remaining.
